Principal's Corner - April 2014

Dear Families,

Seattle Public Schools announced that Highland Park will be designated as an Intervention School to receive additional support this spring and for the 2014-2015 school year to increase student achievement.  While many details are still being determined, highlights include an extended school year opportunity for current K-4 students at Highland Park to offset summer learning loss (more details coming soon), additional funds to purchase reading text and materials, prioritization in district hiring practices, and an additional substitute on Mondays and Fridays to help offset the district substitute shortage.

Seattle Public Schools asked all Highland Park teachers to sign a contract for the 2014-15 school year committing to the additional student contact time, planning, and professional development necessary to bring each and every child to high levels of success.  Staff will make individual decisions regarding their availability for the 2014-15 school year. Regardless of next year’s plans, Highland Park staff members remain committed to bring their best effort to serving Highland Park students until the end of the school year.  By mid- June we will provide families with a staff list for the 2014-2015 school year.
Partnering with Highland Park families is vital for our plans to improve student achievement.  As we plan for the 2014-15 school year, there are many opportunities to share your input. Please join us at our Coffee Chat on April 8, and April 22, at 8:45 am and the PTA meeting on April 9, at 6:00 pm.  Also, please share thoughts, ideas, and questions with your child’s teacher or any member of the Highland Park staff.

Highland Park families are encouraged to participate in the Highland Park hiring committees, please sign up for one of the following hiring trainings. [see schedule below].

Benjamin Ostrom
Principal
