Lake Washington School District jointly with the Lake Washington Education Association are releasing pertinent information and details related to secondary educational offerings for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.  

The District and Association have a shared agreement that secondary students need to be offered access to in-person experiences. Dr. Holmen stated, “We need to ensure that any secondary student who wants an in-person experience is afforded that opportunity.” He went on to say, “Our adolescent youth are experiencing this pandemic in many different ways. We need to be responsive to those needs and be creative in how we address the varying needs across our district.”

    Procedure Staff Protection 

    File: 6512P

    Workers' Compensation
    Workers' compensation is an insurance program which covers job-related injuries and occupational diseases. School staff members are covered by a self-insured program which has been approved by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. The staff member is protected in two ways:

    1. Medical costs resulting from job injuries are paid,
    2. Injured employees are paid a partial wage while off work because of a job injury or illness due to on-the-job causes.

    When a staff member is injured on the job with a time loss, the district shall grant full sick leave for the first three days provided the staff member has accumulated sick leave to cover. For each day covered by workers' compensation the employee may use accumulated sick leave to make up the difference between the workers' compensation payments and the employee's regular salary. In such instances, total pay shall not exceed the staff member's regular pay.
