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.

    Student Records

    File: 3231

    Lake Washington School District shall maintain only those student records necessary for the educational welfare of students, for orderly and efficient operation of schools, and as required by law. All information related to individual students shall be treated in a confidential and professional manner. Student records are the property of the district but shall be available in an orderly and timely manner to student, parent, step-parent, or legal guardian. A parent may challenge any information in a student record believed inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of the privacy or other rights or the student. 

    Parental consent shall be required before the school district may release student records to any individual, agency or organization, except as otherwise provided by law. When a student has attained the age of eighteen years and is no longer dependent or is attending an institution of post-secondary education, the rights accorded to and the consent of the parents under this policy shall thereafter only be accorded to and required of the student. Students between sixteen and eighteen who have been granted legal emancipation from their parents or guardians have the same rights as eighteen year old students. 

    Pursuant to this policy, the superintendent of schools shall establish procedures governing the content, management, and control of student records. This policy shall not apply to records required for reports of child abuse and neglect as mandated by RCW 26.44.010 through RCW 26.44.080.
