    Strategic Plan

    As a public school district, Lake Washington School District is responsible to its community, including students, parents, community members and taxpayers. A strategic plan helps to guide the direction and focus the priorities of the district.

    To accomplish our mission and vision for students, we believe we must stay true to four core values and focus on accomplishing five strategic goals. Strategic efforts to accomplish our goals are guided by three fundamental ideals, which are board priorities.

    Mission

    Each student will graduate prepared to lead a rewarding, responsible life as a contributing member of our community and greater society.

    Vision

    Every Student Future Ready: prepared for college, prepared for the global workplace, prepared for personal success.

    Values

    • Student centered
    • Learning focused
    • Results oriented
    • Community connected

    Strategic Goals

    1. Ensure academic success for every student
    2. Provide safe and innovative learning environments
    3. Recruit, hire, and retain highly effective personnel
    4. Use resources effectively and be fiscally responsible
    5. Engage our communities

     

    Ideals

    Opportunity and Equity, Innovation, Improvement

    The district’s strategic plan specifies key performance indicators and targets associated with each strategic goal. The strategic plan highlights the strategic efforts and work underway, guided by our values and ideals, to accomplish each goal. Each year a Strategic Plan Update and Annual Report is published to provide a progress update to the community.
