  • In recognition of Black History Month, you are invited to join Shoreline Public Schools and the City of Shoreline in our inaugural Black Voices: A Community Opportunity on February 3-7, 2020. All are welcome!

    This week of community evening events seeks to center Black voices, as well as celebrate and affirm our Black students and their families. Our community partnerships emphasize that our commitment to families must extend beyond the walls of our schools. We recognize that when the lights go off in our buildings, we still live, work and socialize together throughout our community. We learn best when we learn alongside one another, and recognize the wealth of knowledge those within our communities offer. As a community, we must affirm our commitment to learn from and look out for our neighbors, including those whose voices have been underrepresented in our current systems. We are committed to fostering those opportunities.

    As outlined in our Race and Equity policy, our school district aspires for historically underserved students to thrive in an environment that notices, acknowledges, and values who they are and contributes to their academic achievement. We aspire to provide respectful and relevant learning environments that leverage diversity and create schools where students, families, community members and employees feel welcomed and supported.

    Links to each of the events happening throughout the week are listed below. You can also find webpages for each of the events listed in the page directory to the left.

    We hope you will consider attending one or more of our Black Voices events—we would love to have you!

    If you have any questions, please reach out to us at BlackVoices@shorelineschools.org.
