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.  

Lake Washington School District has finalized plans to make up for the days and time missed due to the January snow events. The 2019-20 calendar has been modified to reflect the changes.

    Site Plans and Specifications 

    File: 6905

    Every school site shall be master-planned for ultimate development (including portables). This planning should include the locations of all buildings, grounds, and service facilities.

    The superintendent or designee shall be authorized to proceed with boundary and topographic surveys of sites as well as aerial photographs when needed for preparation of plans for site development and buildings. He may also proceed with soil bearing value tests, ground current tests, and other professional services which may be required and which are recommended by the assigned architect. The superintendent or designee may proceed with these commitments without separate board approvals as long as the cost of these commitments is within the funds reserved in the capital project fund accounts.

    Sites — Submittals by Realtor

    It shall be the policy of the Board of Directors of the Lake Washington School District No. 414 to seek sites in areas where needed and to accept submittals of property for future school sites from any owner of property or from any licensed realtor.

    It is understood that nothing in this policy shall in any way limit the use of condemnation proceedings by the School District for acquisition of needed property nor for establishment of a proper price for such property.

    Relations with other Governmental Units

    The board shall not purchase an elementary school site within one-half mile of a district boundary nor a secondary school site within one mile of a district boundary without first discussing the location with the neighboring school district. The board expects to maintain a reciprocal agreement in this regard with each neighboring district in order to avoid the problems which occur when schools are built too close to neighboring districts.
