CONTEXT AND MISSION: Highline Public Schools serves approximately 19,000 students in the communities of

the community’s bold goals and big dreams for its children. The plan’s promise is that every student in Highline

One of the District’s 2017 Goals is that at least 19 out of 20 students entering Grade 9 in 2013 will graduate
prepared to choose their future. This can be achieved if every student has work place experiences that help
shape their career plans, and ERAC is proud to serve as a model by hosting Career Exploration Interns.
The collective commitment embodied in the plan is grounded in the community’s deep belief that Highline
students are capable of reaching the plan’s ambitious goals and is driven by students’ aspirations for their future.
The instructional vision articulated in the plan is organized around Four Pillars that guide professional and
