'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.

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.

    Mandatory Reporting

    File: JH

    Duty to Report

    The Lake Washington School District believes the safety of students is of the highest importance. The district will make every effort to protect children of all ages from abuse and neglect. When any employee has reasonable cause to believe that a child has suffered abuse or neglect he/she is required by law to report, or cause a report to be made, to the proper authorities. Failure to report such incidents may be considered a criminal misdemeanor. It is not a breach of professional confidence or privilege to report in good faith; the law protects professional school personnel from any liability which might otherwise be incurred for breach of confidence between all professional school personnel and their student.

    Reporting Physical Abuse or Sexual Misconduct by School Employee

    A certificated or classified school employee who has knowledge or reasonable cause to believe that a student has been a victim of physical abuse or sexual misconduct by another school employee, shall immediately report such abuse or misconduct to the appropriate school administrator and in accordance with reporting requirements identified in Policy JH-R Within forty-eight hours, the school administrator will notify parents of the alleged physical abuse or sexual misconduct by the school employee. The school administrator shall provide parents with information regarding their rights under the public records act to request public records regarding school employee discipline.
