We have put together some resources that we think may be of help to parents wanting to be involved in their children's education. We have included links to both the Edmonds School District Curriculum Frameworks and the Washington State Essential Learning Requirements so parents can know what subjects should be covered at each grade level and in what sequence they should be covered.
Check Student Grades Online
Skyward Family Access gives you the ability to view your student's attendance, grades, fees and demographic information online. Account information (username and password) is mailed to each family during the month of September. With your account you will be able to view information for all of your children attending the Edmonds School District.
WebTrekker Student Accounts
Students now have a secure "digital locker" that is accessible both at school and at home. They can store files for retrieval both at school and at home as well as submit assignments to and receive corrected assignments from their teachers. Click here for the WebTrekker Access.
Parent Advisory Committees
All vocational areas have advisory committees whose membership includes parents and business representatives for input and problem-solving. If you are interested in participating, contact the Professional-Technical Education Office at (425) 431-7120.
1. Parents (natural parents and legal guardians) have the right to inspect and review the Educational Record and may receive copies, upon request, at a charge not to exceed cost to the district for reproductions.
2. Educational Records is interpreted to mean any and all materials maintained by a school district directly related to a student regardless of where or how materials are filed. This includes reports gained with parent permission from non-district agencies and individuals.

Grades granted for a class are not covered except if an error in recording of the grade is suspected. Parents may enter their own clarification of information into record. An impartial hearing by district records officers will be held if concerns cannot be resolved by building staff and parents.
Family Rights and Privacy Act
The District is required to protect families from unauthorized release of certain information about students. However, "directory information" may be released without permission of parents, unless parents notify their child's school, in writing, of their objections by October 1. Directory information is routinely used by the District in news releases, school event programs and student directories. Such information is also released for the purpose of providing educational, scholarship, vocational, occupational and/or military information and services. Directory information includes the student's name, phone number (except unlisted numbers), address, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and athletics, weight/height of members of athletic teams, grade in school, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received and previous educational agency or institution attended by student. Parent rights transfer to student at age 18 or upon attendance in post-high school education. Parents may retain rights if a student continues in a dependent status.
There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in the life of Lynnwood High School. We have listed some possible areas for involvement and the names of people to contact.
