Parents of middle and high school students are needed to help shape a plan that will guide schools for the next three years, as part of a community effort to create a new three-year strategic plan for the Highline School District.

A free, open public forum will be held fro 6 – 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3 at the Highline High School Cafeteria (225 South 152nd Street).

“The core planning team responsible for designing the plan is seeking ideas from Highline families and community members,” reads an announcement. “The upcoming public input session will focus on ideas that can shape students’ middle school and high school experience.”

“We are working toward very ambitious and necessary goals, to achieve better outcomes and broaden the opportunities for all students, and to better prepare them for their adult, working lives,” said Stacia Jenkins, a member of the core planning team and mother of a student at Pacific Middle School.

All parents are welcome, but middle school and high school parents are especially encouraged to join other families and community members for a meal and a conversation about what we want for our children and our community.

“We have heard exciting ideas from families and community members around the district,” said Susan Enfield, Superintendent. “However, we want additional input about how we can do a better job of educating all students. The middle school and high school years are so vital to student success, and our three-year plan must include strategies that work well for secondary students and schools.”

Here are the details:
