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. 

In light of today’s news about a King County resident’s death related to the Coronavirus (or COVID-19), and that additional cases are anticipated, we wanted to reach out to share what Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is doing to monitor and prepare for a potential increase in frequency of the Coronavirus in our schools.

    Public Access to District Records

    File: 4040

    Accessibility of Records 
    The board believes that providing and sharing official district information with the staff, the public, and other public agencies is of mutual benefit and ensures that the district shall comply fully with the provisions of all applicable statutes of the State of Washington regarding accessibility to those school district records and documents which are legally open for public inspection. 

    The board reserves the right to refuse access to confidential information in students' files, employees' personnel files, confidential memoranda within management, and confidential communications regarding the strategy and parameters in negotiations with employees. Also included in this restriction are the informal interim agreements arrived at by negotiators prior to the conclusion of the negotiations process and negotiations involving acquisition and purchase of real estate. 

    It is understood that certain documents, the release of which might constitute an invasion of privacy, shall be considered personal and private, and shall not be released except upon advice by counsel or by court order. 

    Procedures for implementing this policy shall be administered by the superintendent or designee.
