Dozens of LWSD students earned their way to the 2021 International Career Development Conference (ICDC), which was held virtually in late April and early May. Of that group, about 30 students competed as finalists and two students placed as high as third.

Why is slime stretchy? How do chickens flap their wings? 

With these questions in mind, two science classes at Lake Washington High School celebrated the last week of school by setting up lab experiments. The labs also gave students a chance to use the new equipment in two of the school’s 20 new classrooms.

    Healthy Youth Survey

    Washington State 2018 Healthy Youth Survey

    Our district is participating in the Washington State 2018 Healthy Youth Survey during fall 2018.

    The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

    Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.

    Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter below for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey:

    Healthy Youth Survey gathers information on student behaviors and risks

    Results of the Healthy Youth Survey are used to support our youth and reduce their risks. Every two years, school districts around the state survey students in grades six, eight, ten, and twelve on a wide variety of health topics. The survey is sponsored by the Department of Health, the Family Policy Council, and other state agencies. It asks questions that are related to students' risk of injury, health and alcohol and drug use.

    Because the same survey has been administered over time, changes in attitudes and/or patterns of behavior can be observed. Any differences between school or district results and state results may also emerge.

    Survey results are used by schools, the district, communities and the state and local health departments to plan and to evaluate programs to support our youth and to reduce their risks.

    Survey Results

    If you have any questions about the purpose of the survey or survey procedures, please contact Department of Health, Kevin Beck, 1-877-HYS-7111, or email healthy.youth@doh.wa.gov.
