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.”

    The forms, rules and information students need to participate in LWSD athletic programs

    The primary purpose of our secondary schools is to academically prepare students for graduation, so they become productive community members. However, Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is aware of the important role interscholastic athletics play in the development of students. Therefore, scholastic incentives have been established and are enforced for the educational and personal welfare of students who participate in athletics.

    As members of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA), LWSD must follow all standards set by WIAA. Academic eligibility standards, as outlined in WIAA Rule 18.7.0 requires students to maintain passing grades in:

    • 3 classes in a 4-period class schedule
    • 4 classes in a 5-period class schedule
    • 5 classes in a 6-period class schedule
    • 6 classes in a 7-period class schedule
    • 7 classes in an 8-period class schedule
       
    • Incomplete (I) grades are considered non-numerical grades. Students have 2 weeks to complete required work; if not, an F is issued and the student-athlete becomes ineligible.
    • Schools will monitor a student’s continued academic eligibility with periodic grade checks. Students deemed to be ineligible will be allowed to practice but not to participate in contests until eligibility status is restored.
    • For more information, see the complete LWSD Academic Eligibility Criteria.

    Additionally, to be eligible to participate in any LWSD athletic program, a student must pay all fines, return all equipment/uniforms from previous sports and complete the following requirements:

    Participation information for Choice School students

    Students who attend one of the LWSD Choice Schools may participate in athletic programs at their resident middle school or high school.

    If you have any additional questions, contact your school's Athletic Office for assistance.
