Advocacy Update

School Construction Projects

Lake Washington School District recently presented their newest construction proposals. They are considering a new high school in Sammamish as soon as 2025 that your student(s) might attend: either a choice high school (no transportation provided) or a freshmen-only campus about a half mile south of Eastlake High School. This is instead of their previous goal of a 5th comprehensive high school in Redmond. The Evergreen campus rebuild was also discussed, but no definite information was provided. The District seemed to be of the opinion that there are no middle school capacity shortages in our area. Both video of the presentation and presentation slides are available.
 
If you have questions, comments, or concerns about the District's presentation, you can contact the School Board. Their job is to represent the community, and they want to know what you think! Advocacy@evergreenptsa.org is also here to help, if you have any questions.
Moving from local to state context, the Washington State PTA Legislative Assembly is occurring virtually on October 21 and 22. Any PTSA member interested in attending to represent our PTSA, please email advocacy@evergreenptsa.org.
