Lake Washington School District jointly with the Lake Washington Education Association are releasing pertinent information and details related to secondary educational offerings for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.  

The District and Association have a shared agreement that secondary students need to be offered access to in-person experiences. Dr. Holmen stated, “We need to ensure that any secondary student who wants an in-person experience is afforded that opportunity.” He went on to say, “Our adolescent youth are experiencing this pandemic in many different ways. We need to be responsive to those needs and be creative in how we address the varying needs across our district.”

    PowerSchool Learning and student privacy

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) set guidelines on what student content may be shared with persons outside the class environment. Student work can only be shared with an individual student’s own parent/guardian. Since these types of collaborative spaces display work produced by many students, it is not legal to share this content with all parents. For a comparison of what students can see versus what their parents can see, please refer to the following chart.
