 "These final results are great news for students in Lake Washington School District," said Dr. Traci Pierce, superintendent. "We are thrilled to begin work on the first projects to accommodate our growing enrollment and provide excellent learning environments for years to come. We are grateful to our community for its support and especially the Lake Washington Citizens Levy Committee for their hard work to advocate for the measure."

 

"We are now moving forward with our efforts to build new schools," noted Dr. Pierce. "We have established a small expert advisory group to review design and construction of funded projects. The advisory group will help us follow the cost-effective design principle recommendations of the Long-Term Facilities Planning Task Force."
