Community invited to new school project open houses

Two new elementary, one new middle school funded by LWSD bond measure

Redmond, Wash. – Lake Washington School District will build three new schools -- one middle and two elementary schools -- in the next few years. All three schools will be built in the Redmond area. The district’s April 2016 bond measure, which passed with a 66.28% approval rate, is the source of funding for these projects.
Community members are invited to attend two open house meetings about the new schools. At those meetings, they will be able to ask questions and provide feedback about the three new schools.
These community meetings will take place at the following dates/times:

·         New middle school and new elementary school to be built in Redmond Ridge:
o    Monday, June 13, from 6-8 p.m., Rosa Parks Elementary School commons
·         New elementary school in north Redmond:
o    Tuesday, June 14, from 6-8 p.m., Redmond High School commons
These open-house style community meetings will provide information about the proposed projects. The district will seek feedback on proposed plans. Attendees can come at any time during the two-hour timeframe of the meeting.
Attendance boundaries for these schools will be determined in the year before the schools open. A public process will seek community input into the new boundaries. No information on which students will attend these schools will be available until that time.
The new elementary schools are scheduled to open in fall 2018. The new middle school is scheduled to open in fall 2019.
