    Careers

    Lake Washington School District is currently hiring for the 2021-22 school year!

    COVID-19 vaccination requirement

    On August 18, 2021, Governor Inslee announced a directive (Proclamation 21-14.1) requiring all employees working for public and private K–12 schools to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or obtain a religious or medical exemption by October 18, 2021. 

    We are legally required to follow the Governor’s directive. The order applies to all employees, substitutes and contractors working for Lake Washington School District. New hires must be fully vaccinated by the first day of work or be approved for a medical or religious-based exemption. Proof of vaccination will be required upon hire and will be treated as a confidential medical record.
