Highline School District Gets $600,000 From Toyota
The Highline School District has received a $600,000 grant to help immigrant students and their families at three elementary schools: White Center Heights, Beverly Park and Mount View.
At White Center Heights, for example, parents can come to school three mornings a week, where they attend English-language classes, spend time in their child’s class, learn what’s happening at school and receive parenting tips.
The program is limited to families with students in kindergarten through third grade.
Highline is one of five school districts to receive grants this year.
The program is funded by Toyota and coordinated by the National Center for Family Literacy.
