During its July 13 School Board Meeting, Lake Washington School District Superintendent, Dr. Jon Holmen, removed “Rebels” as the Juanita High School mascot. Dr. Matt Livingston, Director of Secondary Education and Juanita High School Principal, Kelly Clapp, will now begin the process outlined in Policy 6970 to select a new mascot.

Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. We say their names not because they are the only three. They are three of many whose lives were taken and sadly, their names are now part of our history as a country that should be better because of the promise that was put forth that all people are created equal.

Lake Washington School District Community:

Over the past week we have watched events unfold across our country that reflect the anger and outrage that has once again been sparked by a senseless and horrific death.

    SETT Framework

    When choosing Assistive Technology (AT) tools for students, the LWSD AT team uses the SETT (Student, Environment, Tasks, Tools) Framework created by Joy Zabala. In the SETT framework:

    Student

    The Student component looks at the student's strengths, weaknesses, preferences and interests.

    Environment

    The Environment portion looks at the supports that already exist in the student's normal day.

    Tasks

    The Tasks component takes a look at what the student needs to complete or do.

    The Student, Environment and Tasks components are considered first. After considering these factors, the AT team looks at the Tools the student has previously used.

    After considering all items in the SETT Framework, Assistive Technology tools can be selected to meet the student's need to perform a specific task.
