    Work continues to develop new goals and strategic priorities for new Foundation for Excellence

    The district’s strategic plan, called the Foundation for Excellence, was adopted in 2013, and has guided the work of our employees and the overall direction of the district since that time. Since last spring Dr. Collins and his leadership team have been working to review and revise the Foundation to ensure that it captures where we are, and where we strive to be.

    Student Bus Managers support classmates, help reduce problem behaviors on school buses

    Our school buses safely transport thousands of students to and from school throughout the school year. While bus drivers’ main focus is on the road, they are also responsible for monitoring student behavior, which can be tricky. Appointing student Bus Managers has been a positive behavior strategy on elementary buses throughout the district.

  •  Vicky Francois discussing engineering designs with students

    HomeLink students use engineering skills to design and build newsprint towers

    Three sheets of newspaper, one pair of scissors, 12 inches of tape and just 20 minutes to design, build and test a newsprint tower. This is the challenge that students in Amanda Smitkin’s Makers Lab at HomeLink were faced with. The class, made up of students in fourth- through eighth-grade, was broken into teams of two to complete this engineering design challenge. HomeLink is a parent partnership, public school option for students in kindergarten through eighth-grade. Located on the campus of Lake Stevens High School.

  • Understanding Lake Stevens School District’s anticipated 2023-24 budget

    Lake Stevens School District is carefully reviewing its budget projections for the 2023-24 school year, and making necessary adjustments based on federal funding reductions, and the anticipated state budget. However, because of our proactive and conservative budgeting process, and strong community support for passing school levies, the district will not need major budgetary adjustments. Overall, the district projects approximately $3.5 million in budget reductions for the coming school year. Some of these reductions will happen through attrition when staff resign or retire, and their positions are not replaced. Others will happen with strategic cuts and other planned cost saving measures.
