Superintendent

Superintendent Susan Enfield Together with our staff and the Highline community, we have developed a new strategic plan unlike any I have seen in school districts across the nation—it is bold, visionary, and represents the unwavering belief we have in our students’ capabilities. We can feel proud that we have not shied away from setting high expectations for our students and ourselves.

Our promise is to know every student by name, strength, and need, so each will graduate prepared for college, career, and citizenship. We are challenging ourselves to ensure that four years from now at least 19 out of 20 students are learning at or above grade level in third grade, passing Algebra by ninth grade, and graduating high school prepared to choose their future. We have pledged to all but eliminate out-of-school suspensions that rob students of learning time. And we have set long-range goals that every student will graduate bilingual, biliterate, and tech-literate. Make no mistake: in adopting these goals, we in Highline have committed to eradicating the achievement and opportunity gaps that persist in our schools. In doing so, we will prove that public education can work for all children.

Each of us -- staff, families, and community members -- plays a critical role in our students’ success. Delivering on our promise will require all of us working together, but I have every confidence that we can marshal the collective commitment our students need and deserve. 
 
Susan Enfield, Ed.D.
