For the fifth year in a row, the College Board named Lake Washington School District (LWSD) to its Annual AP District Honor Roll. LWSD is one of only 373 public school districts in the United States and Canada and one of four in Washington state to be honored. Lake Washington is one of two districts in the state to be a multi-year recipient of the AP Honor Roll Award.

At its December 3 meeting, Lake Washington School District’s (LWSD) Board of Directors passed Resolution No. 2259 to place a Capital Projects Levy on the April 23, 2019 ballot. This measure, if passed, authorizes a six-year levy totaling $120 million or an average of $20 million per year for six years.

    File: JC

    The superintendent shall recommend attendance area configurations to the Board of Directors. Such configurations shall include but not be limited to a socio-economic impact statement relating to the area under consideration. Attendance variances may be approved by the superintendent or designee.

    Variances in Attendance

    Open Enrollment: Each spring during the pre-determined Open Enrollment period in February, families may apply for a variance request to a different school. Applications for enrollment in a school other than the student's neighborhood school may not be refused except when the school requested has reached its enrollment capacity for the entire school, individual grade level, or classroom. Applications made during the Open Enrollment period will be given first consideration. Applications made after the Open Enrollment period will still be considered; priority for such applications shall follow those made during Open Enrollment.
