Highline Public Schools Equity Symposium Call for Proposals
On August 27 and 28 all Highline staff will come together to deepen their learning and understanding about equity. All staff will attend for one day, attending a session focused on implicit bias as well as selecting an additional session to attend. Sessions will be 90 minutes.

The symposium is one component of a larger trajectory of learning staff will engage in throughout the year. The symposium provides staff with differentiated learning opportunities which will inform and complement ongoing school or departmental work happening throughout the school year.

Highline staff, students, and the community are invited to offer sessions. Proposals are due May 10, and will be reviewed by May 24. Questions can be directed to the Equity Symposium Planning Team by contacting Bernard Koontz at 206 631 3155 or bernard.koontz@highlineschools.org. Professional consultants and speakers on topics related to racial equity should contact Bernard Koontz directly to discuss opportunities for featured speakers roles.
