Envision Shoreline: Strategic Planning Coalition Now Accepting Applications

A strategic plan is an important tool for school districts, especially given the current complex educational landscape, and locally as we work through our significant budget challenges in Shoreline Schools. We need a smart plan to help our district face the future while keeping our mission and vision alive.

Weather Delays and School Closures

When winter weather hits, our top priority is the safety of students and staff. We also recognize that school delays and closures disrupt family schedules and the school year may have to be extended. Our district’s geography is taken into account when the decision is made. One part of our district may be clear, while other areas are struggling with snow or ice.

In the event of a school delay or cancelation, families will be contacted by phone, email, and text (if opted in) using our ParentSquare mass notification system. Please be sure your contact information is current at your child's school.

Since Time Immemorial and Native American Heritage Month

The Since Time Immemorial curriculum was developed to provide educators with materials that were endorsed by all 29 federally recognized tribes of Washington State. During this year’s Native American Heritage Month, many classrooms across Shoreline School District are deepening their learning and appreciation for indigenous culture, history, and contributions to our communities. A recent visit to Highland Terrace Elementary School showcased the power that learning about Native Americans can have on our youngest learners, as they learn from the lesson “Stories and Histories of Our Place.”
