Participate in the Superintendent Search

Participate in the Superintendent Search

The Highline School Board is gathering feedback to help them select our next superintendent. We want your input about:

  • Strengths of our schools and district
  • Challenges the district is currently facing
  • What the new leaders' priorities should be
  • What professional characteristics the next superintendent should have

Your input will help us develop a Leadership Profile Report that will be presented to the School Board. This report guides the search.

There are two ways to share your thoughts.

Complete a survey.

The survey is available in multiple languages. It closes at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, November 29, 2021.

Attend a Community Forum.

You are invited to attend one of two community forums facilitated by the search firm. One forum will be held virtually and one in-person. Due to COVID restrictions, the in-person forum has capacity limitations. Spanish, Somali, and Vietnamese interpreters will attend both forums.

In-Person Forum

Please sign up for the in-person forum by 5:00 p.m. on November 24, 2021. Space is limited due to COVID-19 safety guidelines. We will track sign-ups for the in-person community meeting and turn off the form when we reach capacity for social distancing.
