Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. We say their names not because they are the only three.

    To serve our communities, Lake Washington School District must be closely connected with the community. In fact, to “Engage our communities” is one of the district’s five goals. That engagement takes a number of different forms: community representation in district decision-making and advisory groups; community input into district decisions; partnerships with agencies, business, and government; and volunteers in our schools. There are many ways to get involved. Find the right opportunity for you.
