Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. We say their names not because they are the only three. They are three of many whose lives were taken and sadly, their names are now part of our history as a country that should be better because of the promise that was put forth that all people are created equal.

Lake Washington School District Community:

Over the past week we have watched events unfold across our country that reflect the anger and outrage that has once again been sparked by a senseless and horrific death.

    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.
