Lake Washington School District (LWSD) was accepted today into the League of Innovative Schools, a national coalition of forward-thinking K-12 school districts organized by Digital Promise, a nonprofit organization with the mission to accelerate innovation in education and improve the opportunity to learn for all through technology and research.
Professional Staff Orientation
The board recognizes that an appropriate orientation program can aid in the assimilation of new staff members into the school system and can also contribute to the continued growth of returning personnel. It will, therefore, be the responsibility of the superintendent, or designee, to provide for an annual orientation of all professional staff members.
The orientation of returning personnel shall focus upon the changes which have occurred during the previous year and the general goals for the coming year.
Orientation of personnel new to the school system may extend over a longer period of time and shall provide a broadly based effort to supply information and background details which shall improve the new teacher's understanding of the district's framework--including policies of the board, rules and regulations, and the instructional program.
