When schools closed in March, the traditional end-of-year band concerts that showcase a year’s worth of practice and progress were effectively canceled. Rose Hill Middle School (RHMS) Band Instructor, Angela Laulainen got creative during the remote learning period and had her students record their parts at home.
Community Truancy Boards
Community Truancy Boards are an approach to reducing student absences. Lake Washington School District has two boards: One board covers the Eastlake and Redmond areas. The other covers the Juanita and Lake Washington areas.
The mission of Community Truancy Boards is to improve attendance and school engagement. They find positive solutions to the reasons for each student’s absences. Community Truancy Boards help families address obstacles that prevent students from attending school.
