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.
Each student will graduate prepared to lead a rewarding responsible life as a contributing member of our community and greater society.
We love learning. We provide a continuum of student learning opportunities and services. Our staff engages in best practice professional learning, and we embrace an ongoing cycle of organizational learning and improvement.
These programs are designed to meet the learning styles and needs of students with superior intellectual, academic, and creative abilities.
Special education is not a “place:” rather, it is a set of services. The district’s goal is to partner with families regarding the individual needs of children.
Career and technical education (CTE) courses and programs help prepare students for a wide range of post-secondary high demand, skill, and wage opportunities.
Provides leadership for standards-based teaching and assessing to increase student access and engagement, close achievement and opportunity gaps, and support student learning and success.
Intervention services help students acquire English language proficiency, services for Native American students, and services designed to help mitigate the effects of poverty on student learning and success in school.
The ELL program is about supporting students so they become competent in English and successful in all subjects.
We believe results matter. As a high-performing district, we continuously monitor and analyze student achievement results and organizational results. Results help us determine where to focus, how we can improve, and how we can better serve students.
