STATEMENT REGARDING LAWSUIT FILED OCTOBER 25, 2018

The Issaquah School District has just been made aware of a lawsuit that was recently filed against it which contains very serious and sensitive allegations. The District is now in the process of reviewing the lawsuit with legal counsel, but generally denies any allegations of legal wrongdoing.  

The District recognizes that the allegations set forth in the lawsuit touch upon sensitive subjects for all of the individuals involved, as well as the community, but we are unable to offer any further remarks on the lawsuit or the specific allegations contained in the lawsuit at this particular time.  

We do want our families, and the public, to know that the safety of our students remains of paramount importance. The Issaquah School District has established processes in place for staff to receive, investigate, and respond to reports of all forms of misconduct and defers investigations to local law enforcement when the situation is outside of our jurisdiction. 

Please direct inquiries to Executive Director of Communications, L. Michelle at 425-837-7004 or MichelleL@issaquah.wednet.edu
