Did you Know:

  • Highline Public Schools has over 20,000 students in 39 different school sites.
  • 25% of our students are English Language Learners – meaning English is not the language they speak at home.  We have 101 different languages and dialects spoken at home in our district.
  • Over 63% of our student population are on the free or reduced lunch program, meaning their family income falls below the poverty line.
  • As of November, 2016, we have 697 students who qualify for McKinney-Vento services. Over the last several years this number continues to increase in Highline.
  • State Funding for Education makes up 65% of our district’s budget – forcing the District to find funding elsewhere in order to keep their core programs.

Meeting the Need

The Highline Schools Foundation funding priorities focus on:

  • Programs to improve academic achievement
  • Supporting college and career readiness
  • Grants to teachers for engaging classroom projects
  • The Arts

  • Programs that keep students in school and productive.
