All Lake Washington School District students have the right to public education. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Plyler vs. Doe (457 U.S. 202 (1982)) that undocumented children and young adults have the same right to attend public primary and secondary schools as do U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Lake Washington does not ask for or collect immigration status information.
The district has a number of committees that engage community members in providing advice to the district in several different areas.
Community Tech Advisory Committee (CTAC) - An informal forum for community members to learn about initiatives and to provide feedback to the district as it develops and implements technology.
Community Truancy Boards - Help families address obstacles that prevent students from attending school.
Instructional Materials Committee - Recommends instructional materials to the board of directors.
Design and Construction Advisory Committee - Provides industry expert advice on new school design.
School/District Communications Advisory - Brings together district communications staff with individuals doing communications for schools and PTSAs.
