New Executive Director of HR and Student Services

TimWe are pleased to announce that Tim Haines has been named the new Executive Director of Human Resources and Student Services for Lakewood School District. He will begin his position this summer.

Haines has worked in Lake Stevens School District since 2001. First hired as an elementary teacher, he later moved to Sunnycrest Elementary School where he served as Principal for 11 years. Most recently, Haines served as the Principal of Cavelero Mid High School.

In 2018, Haines was named the regional Elementary Principal of the Year for Snohomish County.

Superintendent Scott Peacock said, “It was clear how respected Haines is by his colleagues at Lake Stevens. We look forward to working with him as he transitions to our district.”
