Lake Washington is a recognized leader in sustainability practices and education. Schools around the district encourage students to actively participate in sustainable practices with special events in April to celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
Local Improvement Districts
As the school district is created for the purpose of educating children and does not have responsibilities for development of the community beyond the school site, it shall be the practice of the Board of Directors to refrain from taking part in a Local Improvement District petition until signatures have been affixed committing at least 50 percent of the non-school district land in the area of the Local Improvement District. An exception may be made to this policy in the event that the Local Improvement District would produce immediate health, safety, or economic benefit to the students using the property in question, or to the school district in general.
