KHSD Parent and Family Center

  • The creation of KHSD Parent Centers support the district’s core values in the commitment to focus on engaging parents and families as an integral part of the success of KHSD students. Research shows that collaborative leadership strengthens our schools and improves services for students.
  • We value and encourage parent and community input as we begin the process of incorporating and providing services to parents and families. We anticipate to grow in scope and services as these new Parent Centers begin a transitional process in becoming a part of the school and community culture and environment. It is a goal to address and meet the needs of the parents and families in order to fully assist in preparing KHSD students for lifelong learning and success.
  • The following is a list of services that Highland High School has begun or plan to begin offering very soon. The vision is to add and develop services based on our community’s needs. Please let us know how we can continue to meet our parents and community needs.
