Over the next few weeks, there will be opportunities for staff, students, parents and community members to have input into the important Lake Washington School District (LWSD) superintendent search process.

At the beginning of the process, input gathered through surveys, focus groups, and community meetings will be used to help define the position profile and desired selection criteria for an ideal candidate. It will also inform the board of the issues and overall climate of the school district.

Ultimately, the School Board makes the final decision on hiring the next superintendent of LWSD.

Two surveys will help the district gather input from the community. The “30 Qualities of a Superintendent Survey” asks locals to share what leadership qualities, expertise and experiences matter most to them in a superintendent.

The “District Review Survey” asks locals to talk about the strengths and challenges for LWSD.

To participate, locals can find the survey links below in various languages.
