    Service Animals in Schools, on School Property, and School Sponsored Events

    The Lake Washington School District acknowledges its responsibility to permit students and/or adults with disabilities to be accompanied by a “service animal” as required by federal laws and Washington State’s law against discrimination. This policy governs the presence of service animals in the schools, on school property, including school buses, and at school activities.

    A “service animal” means an animal that is trained for the purpose of assisting or accommodating a disabled person’s sensory, mental, or physical disability.

    The parent/guardian of a student who uses a service animal must submit a written request to the building principal/site administrator. The building principal, in consultation with the Section 504 Coordinator or Director of Special Services, as appropriate, will determine how to accommodate the request for use of a service animal.

    A district staff member who uses a service animal may request an ADA accommodation through the district’s Human Resources Department.

    The superintendent will develop procedures for the use of service animals.
