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.

    Certificate of Educational Competency

    File: 2411

    The superintendent shall develop regulations and procedures by which individuals, 16 years of age and under 19 years of age who possess substantial and warranted reasons for leaving the regular high school program, may apply to take a test in order to obtain the High School Equivalency Certificate from the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. 

    The High School Equivalency Certificate does not replace the high school diploma, and it does not reflect completion of the usual course of sequential studies. The issuance of the High School Equivalency Certificate does not preclude an individual returning to high school to obtain a regular diploma.
