Levy Development Committee

A community Levy Development Committee will meet throughout April 2009 to form a recommendation of three levy packages for the February 2010 ballot. The Committee will present its recommendation to Superintendent Steve Rasmussen, who will bring a final recommendation to the Issaquah School Board for approval. The School Board plans to present the levy recommendations to the entire community for feedback before authorization.

The Levy Development Committee will consider the proposed content, total cost, and tax impact of three levies: Maintenance and Operations Levy, Capital Levy (technology and critical facility repairs), and Transportation Levy. Considering the current economic climate, Committee members will form levy packages that include funding essential to:

  • Ensure the Issaquah School District has all the resources possible to meet its mission and Ends student learning goals;
  • Safely and efficiently maintain facilities and property according to state and District use standards and schedules.
