How can schools support the social and emotional well-being of students? Highline Public Schools is asking for the public’s ideas in an online conversation, which started Oct. 9.

Input will be used to update the strategic plan, which will guide work in schools over the next five years.

Families, staff and students are invited to share their thoughts on two questions:

  • What are some of the most important things we can do to support your student’s social and emotional well-being at school?
  • What social skills do our students need to learn to be career and life ready?

The online conversation through ThoughtExchange will occur in a three-step process. Participants will be able to see others’ comments and “like” the comments they agree with the most.

  1. Share—answer open-ended questions on social and emotional well-being..
  2. Star—review ideas from others, and add 1-5 stars to the ideas you like best.
  3. Discover—learn what is important to the community as a whole.

If you have children in more than one grade level (elementary, middle and high school), you will receive a separate invitation for each level. We encourage you to participate in all conversations you are invited to join, since social and emotional needs can differ significantly based on the age of the child.

Top thoughts will be posted on Highline’s community input page.

The process starts with an email invitation to participate. You may also register here:
