ISD Seeks Levy Development Committee Members

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on May 07, 2019

The Issaquah School District asks local voters to approve levies to pay for educational enrichments that the state does not fund. This includes the seven period day at two of our comprehensive high schools, mental health and counseling support, safety and security measures, as well as activities, clubs, and sports, which equates to about 15 percent of the operations budget.

Because our current Educational Programs and Operations Levy (formerly called the M & O Levy) expires next year, the District is forming a community committee now to help plan the renewal/replacement of this vitally important levy.

If you are interested in representing the Senior Community, Business Community, or the Community at Large positions on the committee, please contact Lisa White in the Business Office at WhiteL@issaquah.wednet.edu or at 425-837-7024 for an application. Applications are due by May 17.

Committee members will consider the overall need, proposed content, total cost, and tax impacts of the ballot measure and present a final recommendation to the Superintendent. The commitment is to attend the committee meetings on June 5 and 19 that will be held from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the ISD Administration Building at 565 NW Holly Street, Issaquah.

For reference, please visit the 2018 Levy Page for more details on the EP&O Levy up for renewal.
