Evergreen Middle School team wins big at National History Day event

For months, a team of eighth graders from Evergreen Middle School conducted extensive research on the Tuskegee Airmen. Their hard work paid off last week when their 10-minute documentary, “The Tuskegee Airmen: Courage Knows No Color,” was named National Champion in the Junior Group Documentary category of the National History Day competition.



Community Tech Advisory Committee (CTAC)

Committee Purpose:

As part of Lake Washington School District (LWSD) technology planning efforts, the Community Tech Advisory Committee (CTAC), made up of community members and district staff, was established in 2009 to provide feedback on LWSD’s use of technology.

Connection to Strategic Goal:
Goal 2: Safe and Innovative Learning Environments

The priority of the CTAC is to provide an informal forum for community members to learn about technology initiatives and to provide feedback to the district as it develops and implements technology. This feedback is vital to helping LWSD make sure technology is current, effective, and consistent with the district’s mission. The CTAC also seeks to understand and support existing and future educational use of technology by students, staff, and teachers. Open and broad-ranging discussions on the use of technology in education are encouraged.

Three times per year.

Participation is open to all community members within the Lake Washington School District.
