COVID safety protocols led to a different looking Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Culinary Competition this year. The event took place virtually with students cooking from their own kitchens.
Each student will graduate prepared to lead a rewarding and responsible life as a contributing member of our community and greater society.
Focus on Learning
To continue growing as an organization, everyone must have access to learning opportunities that encourage ongoing growth and development.
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 EL program supports students in developing English language proficiency and academic success in all areas.
