HSSC Committee's Final Recommendation to Superintendent

Superintendent’s High School Scheduling Committee

Local Levy Funded IconIn February of 2018, voters approved the Issaquah School District’s Programs and Operations Levy, paving the way for the District to pursue expanded opportunities for high school students within a new high school schedule. 

A high school scheduling committee was chartered and tasked with developing and recommending a common schedule for all comprehensive high schools in the Issaquah School District that provides students with opportunities for enrichment, exploration, acceleration, and remediation. The final recommendation and report of this committee was provided to the Superintendent, Ron Thiele in November 2018.
