Before putting the bond proposal on the ballot this time, the board affirmed a decision to keep grades 9-12 at the high school. That decision followed the grade configuration committee recommendation to retain the 9-12 grade high school, consider two middle schools with grades 6-8, change elementary to grades 1-5 and put preschool and kindergarten together in one location. The 9-12 recommendation was the only one easily agreed upon by the board. Seeing the bond proposal for an out-of-town high school put on the ballot for the third time, however, is not sitting well with a group of district voters actively opposing the board's plan.

Among other things, ABC's proposal pushed to change the high school grade configuration to 10-12 and keep the high school in town at the current site.Lakewood boys take second at leagues
Junior sprinter Devon Smith followed prelim victories in the 200- and 400-meter dashes with championships in the May 9 finals. Smith also closed what was roughly a 50-meter gap as the anchor of Lakewood's winning 4x400 relay, as the Cougars overtook King's in the final stretch. With a 48-second leg, Smith helped the relay team break school and conference records.
Smith's relay teammate, senior Terrence Ordonez also had a career day as he broke meet and stadium records in the boys 800 finals to beat Coupeville standout Kyle King and South Whidbey's Scott Stallman. Ordonez cut more than seven seconds off his time two days earlier to finish in 1:58.20, trailed just tenths of a second by King and Stallman. With the event victory, Ordonez helped hold off a three-event championship by King, who won the mile and two mile.Mack, Jensen named league champs
