    Video: New technology available to every fifth grader in LWSD

    Lake Washington School District is putting the power of technology and innovation in the hands and fingertips of our students. Thanks to funding from the voter-approved 2018 Capital Project Levy, each fifth grader across the district has access to a Microsoft Surface Go while in class. The versatile laptops enable students and teachers to work together on anything from math problems to research for essays. Fifth-grade teachers are learning new instructional delivery strategies to enhance and transform the teaching and learning environment through the use of mobile devices. The students also learn life skills that will help them with their future education or even in the workplace by learning how to be responsible for the devices and by using real-world applications and programs. Thank you, voters, for helping make every student future-ready!
