    Shoreline Public Schools Update – May 28, 2021

    (New) June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month!

    In recognition of LGBTQ+ Pride Month beginning on June 1, we want to take a moment to express our school district’s appreciation and support of our LGBTQ+ students, staff, community members and allies. We see you and we stand with you. 

    LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which the LGBTQ+ community was commonly subjected. This marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against people who identify as LGBTQ+.

    While our nation has made progress in that path to equality, we recognize there is much more work to do to achieve equality for our LGBTQ+ community. On Tuesday, we will proudly raise Pride Flags at each of our schools and district office. We invite you to join us this month in reaffirming our support for our LGBTQ+ students, families and community and recognizing their vast contributions to society. Also, be sure to mark June 7-11 on your calendars for a special Pride Book Fair in partnership with Third Place Books. Details and links will be shared in next week’s update.

    (New) Remote Learning Option Update for Fall

    In our May 17 update, we noted that Governor Inslee had stated that he expected school districts to offer remote learning options for students who need it.

    (New) Shorecrest Drama’s Original Musical Comedy Series Begins Streaming Tonight

    While they couldn’t perform an in-person musical this spring, Shorecrest Drama took “pandemic projects” to another level by producing an original musical comedy series, More Than a Feeling. Written by Shorecrest Theater Director Andy Kidd and his musical collaborator Chris DiStefano, students took on much of the series’ filming and editing.

    They will release a new episode (seven total) at 7 pm daily—kicking off with two episodes tonight! You can find them on YouTube at http://bit.ly/SCDrama. There is no ticket needed and you can watch anytime! Should you feel inspired to donate to Shorecrest Drama, please do so here. Donations are immensely appreciated, and will help offset production expenses.

    Here’s the show’s description:

    Shorecrest High School (yep, the very one) lands a one-night-only reunion concert of one of the hottest boy bands of the 2010s—One Direction—and a chance for one lucky student to be featured as the opening act! But before the big night, forces beyond anyone's control threaten to thwart everyone's dreams. With book, music, and lyrics by Kidd and DiStefano, and featuring Shorecrest Drama students as performers, episode directors, and additional songwriters, More Than A Feeling is a quirky musical comedy about a group of high-school kids facing an extraordinary challenge and discovering the power of community.

    (New) Weekly Equity Update: Anti-Racism Resolution Approved by School Board

    On Monday, the Shoreline School Board unanimously approved a historic Anti-Racism Resolution to support implementation of anti-racism processes and practices for students and staff across the district. The resolution was drafted by a group of Shoreline Schools staff of color and included input and ideas from students, staff, community and the school board. “This resolution was created with care and urgency,” said Dr. Tanisha Brandon-Felder, director of equity and family engagement. “The most impacted groups crafted the language, did the research, gathered examples and created the vision.”

    Some of the resolution’s highlights include:

    • Ensuring that implicit bias, racism, oppression and their impacts are understood
    • Proactively teaching students and staff about racism’s causes and effects
    • Developing and revising student handbooks and discipline policies to reflect the impact racially derogatory language and actions have on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) students and staff
    • Reviewing and adjusting grading, discipline and special education/program identification practices to remove the disproportionality that exists for BIPOC students
    • Establishing Anti-Racism, Hate and Bias Plans in each school that includes staff training and accountability measures
    • Developing plans and allocating resources for ongoing anti-racism training for all students, staff and members of the school board
    • Holding students and staff accountable for interpersonal racist acts
    • Establishing processes for students and staff to report and receive support when racist incidents occur

    Read the full resolution here.

Results of those surveys are now posted on our website. The reports are longitudinal, showing results for the past three years.

    Shoreline Public Schools Update – March 19, 2021

    (New) Middle and High School In-Person Hybrid Learning Update

    We will soon begin offering all middle and high school students an in-person hybrid learning option. 100% remote learning will also continue to be an option for those who prefer to remain in that learning model. We are excited to soon be able to offer this additional learning option for middle and high school families to consider.

    As noted in Superintendent Miner’s message last week, Governor Inslee has issued a proclamation directing schools across the state to begin offering in-person hybrid learning options to middle and high school students by April 19. The week of April 19-23 is spring break for our schools, so we are seeking clarification from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) regarding our calendar. District and employee group representatives had been making progress toward a plan and agreement to offer hybrid learning to grades 6-12 prior to the governor’s announcement and we expect that there will be agreements established early next week.
