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.
Our district's parent and community volunteers provide tremendous support every day to our schools. Our volunteer office is involved in recruiting and placing volunteers for specific school needs, such as health screenings and the AVID program.
