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.

    Process for Addressing Board Member Violations

    Policy type: Governance Culture
    Policy code: GC-9

    The Board and each of its members are committed to faithful compliance with the provisions of the Board’s policies. The Board recognizes that its failure to deal with deliberate or continuing violations of its policies risks the loss of confidence in the Board’s ability to govern effectively. Therefore, in the event of a member’s mistaken, willful and/or continuing violation of policy, the Board ordinarily will seek remedy by the following process:

    9.1    Conversation in a private setting between the member considered to be in violation and the Board president or other individual member;

    9.2    Discussion in a private session between the member considered to be in violation and the full Board (if permitted by law);

    9.3    Possible removal by the Board from any leadership or committee positions to which the offending member has been appointed or elected;

    9.4    Censure of the offending member of the Board as a means of separating the Board’s focus and intent from those of the offending member.
