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.

    District Fundraising Activities 

    File: 6102

    The ability to offer diverse, quality educational programs and experiences for our students depends in part on our ability to secure reliable and supplemental sources of funding. The district recognizes that it needs adequate state, federal, local, and nongovernmental funds to achieve its goals. The district further recognizes that limited state and federal funds present challenges for the district. The district needs to seek local and nongovernmental funding sources in order to preserve and to establish necessary district programs and educational opportunities.

    To facilitate the effective and efficient management of local district fundraising, the board authorizes fundraising activities where such programs:

    1. Promote K-12 education,
    2. Provide educational experiences for students,and/or
    3. Address local funding obligations that support the educational mission of the district and/or promote the effective, efficient, or safe management and operation of the district.

    Fundraising programs, including enterprise activities, shall be in the best interests of the district and shall not interfere with the operation of the district’s programs and functions.

    This policy governs the establishment and administration of district fundraising for the general fund and for particular programs in the district. It does not address fundraising programs conducted by the Parent Teacher Student Association or other non-profit or citizens organizations. Fundraising by the Associated Study Body (ASB) is addressed by Policy IGDF (Student Fund-Raising Activities), RCW 28A.325.030 and the ASB Manual.

    The superintendent (or designee) shall establish procedures for the administration of district fundraising programs to ensure compliance with all applicable laws.

    Student Fundraising Activities

    The board acknowledges that the solicitation of funds from students, staff and citizens must be limited since students are a captive audience and since solicitation can disrupt the program of the schools. Solicitation and collection of money by students for any purpose including the collection of money in exchange for tickets, papers, magazine subscriptions, or for any other goods or services for the benefit of an approved school organization may be permitted by the superintendent providing that the instructional program is not adversely affected.

    The superintendent shall establish rules and regulations for the solicitation of funds by approved school organizations, official school-parent groups and by outside organizations. The principal shall distribute these rules and regulations to each student organization granted permission to solicit funds.
