The Draft of the 2019-2020 F-195 Budget is here:
Jacob Kuper presented the annual internal monitoring report for EL-5 Actual Financial Condition and Activities. The Issaquah School District has had 17 consecutive years of clean audits.
Legislative matters: Marnie Maraldo met with our district representatives Bill Ramos and Lisa Callan to discuss concerns over transportation/bus issues with the road improvements on Hobart Rd. She also discussed the situation at Echo Glen concerning the future of the students incarcerated there. In the past ISD has provided education services, but budget constraints have resulted in pulling some teaching staff. Their conversation is ongoing.
Works in progress were discussed. The district will have 4 new schools opening in the next 2 years. The next Levy recommendations are in and will be presented soon. A new Boundary Review Committee is being formed. The US Department of Education is coming to visit the Issaquah School District on Tuesday, Oct. 29th to see their “Green Team” efforts on conservation.
Future events include a “Good Neighbor” gathering in the office park where the district has relocated. They have moved from their old location on Holly to:
