Highline Public Schools seeking input on new trimester schedule

Highline Public Schools high schools will switch from a two-term semester schedule to a three-term trimester schedule in the fall of 2020, and the district is seeking public input:

Students will have five (longer) class periods a day, rather than six (shorter) periods.

The trimester schedule gives students the opportunity to take more courses and earn more credits in four years of high school.

Families will have the opportunity to provide input online and in-person.
