Redmond, Wash. - Lake Washington School District is planning three ballot measures for the February 8, 2022 election. The measures are a replacement of the existing Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy, a replacement of the existing School Technology and Capital Levy, and a Building Excellence Capital levy. A recommendation was presented to the Board of Directors on October 4, and they formally approved the levies at their October 18 board meeting.

    File: JI

    Gifts to Students
    Lake Washington School District discourages gifts to students for school-related activities, other than those which are in the nature of scholarships, or awarded by the school district itself, or awarded under the provisions of the code of the National High School Activities Association or the Washington High School Activities Association.

    Awards for Achievement
    Awards may be given to students for scholarship and distinguished service. All such honors within the school setting shall be awarded upon recommendation of the appropriate staff and the building principal.

    The acceptance of trophies, prizes, or awards from persons not associated with the schools must receive prior approval of the appropriate school staff. Such approval shall be based upon the general criteria that:

      1. The origins and purposes of said awards are in agreement with school district goals and
      2. The right of selection and approval remains with the staff.

    This policy does not prohibit the acceptance of gifts or grants for scholarship which are not associated with contests and which are absent motives of personal gain or publicity.

    Organizations which provide co-sponsorship for awards of achievement shall indicate their compliance with open-meeting practices, non-discrimination, and any other requirements set forth by law, policy, and regulation governing this school district.
