Every four years, the Issaquah School District asks local voters to approve levies to pay for educational essentials that the state does not fund, including school buses, classroom technology, and about 20 percent of the operations budget.
Because our current levies expire next year, the District is forming a community committee now to help plan the renewal levy measures. If you are interested in representing the community at large on the committee, or as a member of your local school, please contact Lisa White at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-837-7024 for an application, or pick one up at your local school building by April 7th.
Committee members will consider the overall need, proposed content, total cost, and tax impacts of the ballot measures and present a final recommendation to the Superintendent.
Please be aware that the Levy Development Committee is scheduled to meet from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 3 and May 17, with the possibility of additional meetings on Wednesday, May 31 and June 7, if necessary. Committee members should plan to attend each meeting.
If you know someone who would make a particularly good committee member, please extend a personal invitation.
We appreciate your support as we head into this important committee work!
