Highlands Elementary is a Title I school. This classification is based on the number of students receiving free/ reduced meals at school. We receive funding to support student learning and to promote family involvement. You will receive Highlands newsletters and flyers throughout the year announcing special evening events and other opportunities for involvement. You are always welcome to contact your child's teacher, Mrs. Nelson, our counselor and family support contact, to discuss the many ways you can be involved.

Florida's School Public Accountability Report (SPAR) Availability
As a requirement of federal No Child Left Behind legislation, Florida's School Public Accountability Reports (SPAR's) are published at the beginning of the school year. These reports measure the educational progress of schools, school districts, and the state. These reports include information on student academic achievement, professional qualifications of teachers and staff, and school safety and environment. Such information helps measure the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for individual schools, school districts, and the state. The SPAR for Seminole County Public School District schools can be accessed at the Florida Department of Education website:http://schoolgrades.fldoe.org/
Printed copies of SPAR are also available for viewing at local schools and can be sent to interested parties by the schools upon request.To view Highlands Parental Involvement Plan, click the link below:Parental Involvement PlanTo view Highlands Title I Family Engagement Brochure (in English), click the link below:Parent Engagement Plan - EnglishTo view Highlands Title I Family Engagement Brochure (in Spanish), click the link below:Parent Engagement Plan - SpanishTo view the Highlands School Home Compact (in English), click the link below:School Home Compact - EnglishTo view Highlands School Home Compact (in Spanish), click the link below:School Home Compact - SpanishTo view Highlands School Improvement Plan, click the link below:School Improvement Plan
