This year, more than 60 students in second through fourth grades graduated from the Team Read program at Hazel Valley and Midway. Team Read pairs students who are reading at least one year below grade level with trained teen coaches. They meet for one-on-one tutoring after school and during the summer.
Highline children can eat free breakfast, lunch, and snacks during the summer through the federally funded Simplified Summer Food Program. The program provides funding for several of our schools to serve children living in South King County.

With the close of the legislative session, we now have a clearer budget picture for 2019-20. State lawmakers made some modifications to the McCleary funding plan that help us. However, enrollment is still declining, and that means a decline in state funding.
Our strategic plan names ambitious academic goals, including a goal for at least 19 out of 20 students to graduate prepared to choose their future. Why aim so high? Because our students are worth it, and they are capable of it.
Every student is known by name, strength and need. We will empower our scholars to be resourceful, considerate, curious, problem solvers who will graduate ready for college, career and citizenship.
