    Update to guidelines for attending board meetings

    Proclamation 20-28.15 Open Public Meetings Act and Public Records Act Proclamations, extends the prohibition on in-person meetings, but created an exemption for public meetings that “compl[y] with the guidelines for 'business meetings,’ found in the 'Miscellaneous Venues’ guidance'." 

    Currently, school districts continue to be required to hold remote meetings. In the event a school district can comply with the miscellaneous venues guidance and all other requirements related to COVID-19, a meeting may be held in-person. If the miscellaneous venues guidance and all other requirements related to COVID-19 cannot be met, the school board must hold their meetings remotely and accessed (live steam or via audio) remotely.

    The Board will notify the public of the location of their meetings through the meetings tab on Board Docs.

    In the event the school board holds an in-person meeting the following conditions apply:

    • You no longer need to pre-register to attend a board meeting/study session or special board meeting. 
    • Face coverings/masks will be required for all attendees attending a board meeting, study session or special board meeting.

    Board meetings, study sessions, and special board meetings will continue to be live-streamed on the LWSD website. If community members are unable to live stream the meeting, they may call to listen to the meeting: 425-936-2813/Conference ID: 37127.

    You are always welcome to email any individual Board member or the entire Board at any time outside of public comment at (boardmembers@lwsd.org).
