Season of Giving

'Tis the Season of Giving in Lake Washington School District (LWSD). Each year schools and district buildings across LWSD think of ways to benefit those most in need during the holiday season.

Elizabeth Fu

It is one thing to get a score of five on any Advanced Placement (AP) exam, but to get every, single point possible is very unique. Elizabeth Fu, International Community School class of 2021, is one of just 375 students across the world to accomplish this.



    Discipline: Change in Placement

    File: IGB-R: Special Education, Cont.

    A change of placement occurs when a special education student is:

    • Removed from current placement for more than ten consecutive school days in a school year; or
    • Subjected to a series of removals in a school year and which constitute a pattern of removal because:
      1. The series of removals total more than ten school days in a year.
      2. The student behavior is substantially similar to the student’s behavior in previous incidents that resulted in the series of removals; and
      3. Factors such as the length of each removal, the total amount of time a student is removed, and the proximity of the removals to one another

    Whether a series of removal constitutes a change in placement is determined on a case-by-case basis by the building principal and special education director and is subject to review through due process and judicial proceedings. The building administrator will notify the special education director or designee of relevant circumstances by email or in writing.
