After 18 months of distance and hybrid instruction, you may be concerned about whether your student can master this year’s grade level. Highline teachers are committed to a strategy called grade-appropriate learning, which prioritizes content for the current grade level and reviews skills from previous grades only when students need them to learn current grade-level work. Watch a video to see how one teacher uses grade-appropriate learning to capitalize on her student's strengths and support students when they need it the most.
Mrs. Heater shares some insight on what to ask during your Student-led Conference. Conferences are coming up - Nov. 22, 23 and 24. If you haven't scheduled one yet with your child's teacher, please reach out right away!
During distance and hybrid learning, you likely had a front-row seat to your child’s learning. We want to continue to work as partners in learning, even when most of our students are back to learning in person, full time. Conferences are one opportunity to connect with your child’s school and teacher(s). We want you to get the most out of conferences. To help, here are seven questions to ask during your conference. Use these questions to build a stronger partnership with your student’s teacher and school.
We know some students need different support following 18 months of distance and hybrid instruction. This year, our teachers are committed to a strategy called grade-appropriate learning. We want feedback from families. What questions, concerns or comments do you have about this strategy? Participate in our ThoughtExchange to give your input.
The Highline School Board is gathering feedback to help them select our next superintendent. We want your input about the strengths of our schools and district, the challenges the district is currently facing, what the new leader's priorities should be, and what professional characteristics the next superintendent should have.
We are graduating more students bilingual and biliterate than ever before! The Class of 2021 included 336 students who received the Seal of Biliteracy, Highline's highest number yet! This number will continue to rise as we expand dual language, world language and heritage language programs throughout Highline.
