    Redmond, Wash. – On April 30, 2020, Lake Washington School District (LWSD) sold a total of $118.85 million of tax-exempt refunding bonds, which will refinance $134 million of its existing debt, to take advantage of lower market interest rates. The refinancing will save the District’s taxpayers more than $18.6 million over the next nine years.

    Redmond, Wash. – The State Board of Education (SBE), the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC) have identified 391 schools statewide to receive recognition. Schools in Washington stand out for closing gaps, showing growth, and demonstrating achievement according to new data released by the state.

    Redmond, Wash. – The Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Board of Directors has selected Dr. Jon Holmen to be the next Lake Washington School District Superintendent. They announced their decision on Monday, March 23, 2020.

    Redmond, Wash. – The Lake Washington School District has been following guidance from Public Health in an effort to stay open as long as possible. In light of the current information shared today by our elected officials, we believe it is time to plan for alternative ways to serve our community and families. 

    In collaboration with our School Board of Directors and our Lake Washington Education Association, we have made the decision to close all schools from March 12 through March 27, and re-evaluate any further closures during that time.

    A video message from LWSD Superintendent Dr. Jane Stavem on planning for the remainder of the school year and beyond.

    We want to update you on grading for this semester based on the new information districts have received from the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). At the end of April, OSPI provided new rules and guidance about grading in light of the COVID-19 school closures. The rules are intended to address the current and future needs of students given the difficult conditions we all continue to experience during this global health crisis.

    Dear Families,
     
    As we finish our first week of curriculum-based remote learning, we want to thank our community for the tremendous efforts to make this transition. We know that everyone in our community including families, teachers, staff and administrators are working hard to support our students in these difficult times. 
     
    As we plan ahead, it is helpful to hear from you. We’re asking that you take a few minutes to complete this short survey https://survey.k12insight.com/r/N7RcIM. Responses are anonymous and results will be used to help us plan for continued remote learning across the district.
