Next fall, we plan to reopen schools for in-person instruction five full days a week for students in Pre-K through grade 12, as long as public health authorities continue to support in-person learning. 

As recommended by the CDC and Washington State Department of Health, we will require three-foot distancing, face masks and other safety measures. Families will be able to choose a remote option.

Teaching Through a Pandemic

The past 14 months have been extremely challenging for educators across the country. In Highline, our teachers showed incredible innovation and perseverance as they transitioned to distance learning and then hybrid learning, finding new ways to engage students and families.

All 3rd grade families are invited to attend a zoom event on April 28th from 6-7 p.m. to learn about grade level expectations for reading by the end of the year.

Student in School

State Superintendent Chris Reykdal announced this week that students will not take state standardized tests this spring. Instead, the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) and Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science will be scheduled in Fall 2021.

The fall testing schedule meets the federal requirement for state testing without committing valuable learning time this spring to test-taking. 

Teacher in Classroom

Thank you to all who participated in our focus groups on standards-based grading. More teachers across Highline are using a standards-based approach to grading assignments and giving feedback. We hope to pilot a new standards-based report card soon.
