2019 Capital Projects Levy Construction Update

Lake Washington High School


Groundwork at LWHS

Construction has started on the Lake Washington High School addition. Funded by the April 2019 capital projects levy, an additional 20 classrooms are under construction near the Performing Arts Center. A new parking lot is also available for students in the northwest corner of campus.

Earthwork has started at the site. A precast vault was assembled to filter stormwater from the site. The additional classrooms will open for students in fall 2020. An auxiliary gymnasium and commons are planned to open in fall 2021.


Elementary school additions
The Lake Washington School District has started planning and designing additions at four elementary schools that will receive new permanent classrooms. The levy is also funding safety and security upgrades across the district.
