In 2018, Highline Public Schools was awarded a three-year Best Starts for Kids King County grant for the implementation of the SBIRT process in four middle schools. The SBIRT is an innovative model to help schools intervene early when substance use or mental health concerns may interfere with a student’s ability to succeed. SBIRT is a quick, effective method for identify concerns, providing a brief intervention and referral to services if necessary. The Project Coordinators will each work with two middle school SBIRT teams to develop and implement the SBIRT process. The SBIRT process will include the gradual phasing in of the SBIRT process for all students. For more information visit:

Highline Public Schools serves approximately 19,000 students in the communities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, SeaTac, and White Center in Washington State. In 2013, parents, students, community members, and staff at all levels of the district came together to develop a strategic plan that reflects our goals and dreams for our students. The plan was updated in 2018 to guide our work through 2023. The plan’s promise is that every student in Highline Public Schools is known by name, strength, and need, and graduates prepared for the future they choose. The strategic plan is centered on Our Promise. It includes five big goals for Highline students, supported by Our Foundation. * Equity. We will disrupt institutional biases and end inequitable practices so all students have an equal chance at success. * Instruction. We will reduce achievement and opportunity gaps by using culturally responsive, inclusive, standards-based instruction. * Relationships. We will know our students by name, strength and need and have open, two-way communication with students, families and community partners. * Support. We will increase student success by supporting their social-emotional and academic needs.
