2019-20 brings an 11th year of significant growth to the District. LWSD is now the second-largest district in the state, behind only Seattle Public Schools.
The district’s growing enrollment is evidence that LWSD attracts families to the area it serves in Kirkland, Redmond and Sammamish, Washington. To serve that growing enrollment, the district is “Building on Success.” That’s the district’s long-term plan to continue to build schools and to provide quality learning environments and experiences.
In April 2019, voters approved a capital projects levy that provides:
- Classroom space for 1,052 students by providing additions at five schools for a total of 44 new classrooms
- Expansion of commons and auxiliary gym space at Lake Washington High School (LWHS) and expansion of core facilities at the identified elementary schools where feasible.
- Student safety and security enhancements including exterior security cameras at all elementary schools and remodeled entryways at Redmond, Eastlake and Lake Washington High Schools to implement entry control systems
