The next Climate and Culture Planning Session for Highline High School will be held this Wednesday night, Aug. 23, from 6 â€“ 8 p.m. at the school’s cafeteria.
Inspired by a controversial incident involving the painting over of a message on the schoolâ€™s Spirit Rock in June (read our previous coverage here), this will be the third session, where interested parents, students and citizensÂ will form committees and begin developing action plans to address equity, race and positive school culture.
This meeting is open to all who want to participate in a positive movement towards a stronger, more unified and equitable school culture.
The goal is to ensure that â€œevery student is safe, accepted and celebrated,â€ Principal Vicki Fisher said.
