Carefully constructed bond reflects the values of our community
Our community benefits from excellent schools and excellent teachers. There is a connection between the two. Over many years, I listened to why new teachers chose Issaquah schools over those of other districts, and I heard them name the facilities provided for our children as one of the top reasons. Our schools not only provide environments that facilitate learning and stimulate creativity, they are also a reflection of the value our community places on education.
A citizen’s committee, after careful consideration, recommended a bond package to the school board, which carefully weighed this investment against the need to replace old buildings, protect and maintain our community assets, ensure the usability and safety of our facilities, accommodate future capacity and provide optimal learning environments. It reflects the values of our community and respects our ability to invest in our future.
I urge you to vote yes on the April 17 Issaquah School District Construction and Maintenance Bond.
