    Recognizing and valuing that we are a diverse community, it is part of our mission to provide a positive, harmonious environment in which diversity is respected and encouraged.

    A major aim of education in the Lake Washington School District is the development of a commitment to the core values of a democratic society. In accordance with this aim, the district strongly emphasizes a core value of mutual human respect for each person regardless of individual differences and/or, characteristics including for example, but not necessarily limited to race; gender; creed; religion; color; national origin; honorably discharged veteran or military status; sexual orientation, including gender expression or identity; marital status; age; the presence of any sensory, mental or physical disability; or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability. We expect this value to be manifested in the daily behaviors of students, staff, and volunteers.

    Appropriate consequences for students who violate this policy will be specified in the student code of conduct of each building. Staff members who violate this policy will be subject to discipline as appropriate, pursuant to collective bargaining agreements and state and federal laws.
