Coming in September 2019, Timberline Middle School will welcome incoming students to the new school at Redmond Ridge. To introduce the students to their new community and connect them with each other, Timberline hosted a school-wide, carnival themed event on May 28.
Budgets and Financial Reports
The district's annual budget and other financial reports are available below.
The budget summary provides meaningful financial and budgetary information to the public. It provides background information on the different funds, sources of income and more. The budget summary document includes the same basic financial information available in the district’s official F-195 budget, while at the same time providing valuable context, helpful graphs and charts, and additional data that enhances the understanding of that basic financial information and its relation to the strategic goals of the district. The district was awarded the Meritorious Budget Award for this document.
The full budget is the district’s official F-195 form filed with the Office for the Superintendent of Public Instruction. For past years, the completed financial report, the official F-196 form filed with the state, is also posted.
Each year, the Washington State Auditor’s office performs an audit of Lake Washington School District’s financial statements and reviews its compliance with state and federal laws. This independent review helps ensure that the district is following appropriate accounting standards and has financial control over the use of taxpayer dollars.
This independent audit reviews the district’s internal control over financial reporting and major programs for which the district receives federal funding. The auditor obtains reasonable assurance about whether the district’s financial statements are free from material misstatement. The audit is performed in accordance with government auditing standards. The independent audit also reviews the district’s accountability and compliance with state laws and regulations as well as its own policies and procedures. The two reports for each year are posted below and are also available on the website of the Washington State Auditor.
The proposed budget was presented at the June 24, 2019 Board meeting. Public comment period for the proposed budget is June 25-August 11. The Board will have a public hearing for the budget on August 12. On August 26, the Board will take formal action on the 2019-20 budget.
If you would like additional information, please call Lake Washington School District’s Public Information Office at 425-936-1300. Please send your comments and suggestions concerning the budget to PublicComment@lwsd.org.
