If you live in Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and your child will be five years old on or before August 31, 2018, it is time to register them for Kindergarten. Registration takes place at your neighborhood school.

LWSD holds an open enrollment period once each year for parents who want their children to attend a school other than their neighborhood school. Parents may apply between February 1-28 for a change to the school assignment for the 2018-19 school year for students in grades 1-12.



District seeks committee members for February 2018 levies and bond Voter’s Pamphlet Statements

Redmond, Wash. - Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is seeking potential authors for the voter’s pamphlet statements opposing the two Lake Washington School District replacement levies and one bond measure that will appear on the February 13, 2018 ballot.

Election regulations require Lake Washington School District to appoint members to “pro” and “con” committees who are willing to write statements for the local voters’ pamphlet. Since there is an organized promotional campaign committee, the Lake Washington Citizens Levy Committee, the district has asked that organization to name the three individuals who will serve on the “pro” committees.

The district is soliciting members for “con” committees for the voter’s pamphlet. If you would like the district to consider you for appointment to one or more of the committees who will be asked to write a statement in opposition, please email your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address to Diane Jenkins,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22. Please identify which of the three committees you would like to participate in:

  • Con Committee: Replacement of Existing Educational Programs and Operations Levy
  • Con Committee: Replacement of Existing Capital Projects Levies
  • Con Committee: Bonds to Reduce Overcrowding and Enhance Student Learning Environments

You may apply for membership to more than one committee.

The district expects the School Board will take final action to officially name the committees, assuming volunteers step forward, on December 4.

Complete information on the bond and levy measures is available on the Bond & Levies page of the LWSD website.
