COVID safety protocols led to a different looking Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Culinary Competition this year. The event took place virtually with students cooking from their own kitchens.
The Lake Washington School District believes in fostering an educational environment that is safe and free of discrimination for all students consistent with its nondiscrimination policy (5010). To that end, the District recognizes the importance of an inclusive approach toward transgender students with regard to official records, confidential health and education information, communication, restroom and locker room accessibility, sports and physical education, dress codes and other school activities, in order to provide students with an equal opportunity for learning and achievement. This policy and its procedure will facilitate district compliance with local, state and federal laws concerning harassment, intimidation, bullying and discrimination.
