So much of what makes the Issaquah School District great is possible because of voter-approved levies. Levies use local dollars to benefit local students.
Here are just a few of the things that are funded in our schools thanks to levies: - Our counselors help students learn to manage their emotions in healthy ways and get along with others. - Our career and technical programs give students real-world skills to prepare them for good jobs after graduating. - Our special education programs help students of all abilities thrive at school alongside their peers. - Our school security staff keep students safe. - Our teachers get ongoing training to keep them up-to-date on the best ways to teach and care for students. - Our preschool programs give kids a strong start in their education that will serve them for the rest of their lives. - Our new Dual Language program teaches kids in both English and Spanish, helping them develop a second language and learn to value different cultures. - Students learn about hard work and teamwork by participating in athletics and other extra-curricular activities.
A renewal levy will be on the ballot in February 2020. Find out more on the Issaquah School District website, and be sure to register to vote.
