“We are truly grateful for the support for education from our communities,” said Dr. Traci Pierce, superintendent. “It has been a true community effort. I want to recognize the efforts of the Lake Washington Citizens Levy Committee, a group of parents, staff and community members who have worked tirelessly on behalf of students and this measure. They are amazing advocates for students, families and our community.”
“In addition, many community leaders, elected officials from both parties, citizens, businesses, organizations, staff members, parents, family members and students supported the measure. I cannot thank everyone enough for their efforts on behalf of our students. Now we can start to move forward to address overcrowding and improve our schools.”
