Policies and procedures about the district’s building construction programs. As the educational program changes, buildings can make it easier to provide specific environments that enhance learning, as described in the district’s education specification. Includes the district’s Capital Facility Plan.
These projects involve a complete upgrade / remodel of a school or building a new comprehensive neighborhood school. The district updates school buildings every 30-40 years, according to its educational specification. Phase I projects are completed – learn how your tax dollars were spent. Phase II projects are underway – find updates to projects including Lake Washington High School, Finn Hill Middle School and Rose Hill Middle School here.
Periodically, Lake Washington School District proposes construction projects and acts as the lead agency for review under the State Environmental Protection Act (SEPA). For non-exempt projects, SEPA requires the District’s responsible official to make a determination as to whether or not the project has a significant environmental impact. SEPA notices are posted here.
Capital projects help improve and / or add on to district buildings. It may involve building small new buildings as well.
