The Highline Special Needs Parent-Teacher Association applauds Highline Schools for conducting a Review of Curricula and Instructional Services to Students with Disabilities in the Highline Public Schools with Urban Special Education Leadership Collaborative. The Highline Special Needs PTA is encouraged by the effort of Highline Schools to identify and address the challenges in our district and looks forward to seeing a plan of action for implementing the proposed recommendations from Urban Collaborative.

The Highline Special Needs PTA especially thanks Dr. Susan Enfield, Superintendent, and Deborah Holcomb, Executive Director for Special Services and Student Support, for having this review, and the entire Highline School Board for addressing the current needs and challenges of meeting the needs of our special education students. We look forward to working together with the district to improve education opportunities for all of our students.
