In 2013, parents, students, community members, and staff at all levels of the district came together to develop a four-year strategic plan that reflects our goals and dreams for our students. We began a process to update the plan in Spring 2017, after reaching the target date set for most goals in the 2013-2017 strategic plan. The new plan will 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.
