Annual Community Report for the 2018-2019 School Year

The Issaquah School District invites the community to view our annual report online for the 2018-2019 school year. The report contains an interactive scorecard along with links to take a deeper dive into student performance data on state assessments. Because student achievement is also demonstrated through extra-curricular activities, the arts, community service, leadership, and citizenship, the report connects to our snapshots page celebrating these accomplishments. Information and links are also provided to learn about programs and services designed to assist students in accomplishing the ISD School Board’s Ends for Students. An overview of the District’s finances including revenues and expenditures is reported along with a comprehensive guide to understanding the 2018-2019 budget. For more information regarding the community report, please contact Executive Director of Communications, L. Michelle at michellel@issaquah.wednet.edu or 425-837-7004.

Important Note:

The Issaquah School District is committed to providing access to all individuals visiting our district website, including persons with disabilities. If you cannot access content on our website or this annual report because of a disability, please call L. Michelle at 425-837-7004 or email webmaster@issaquah.wednet.edu and describe the nature of the accessibility needs and your contact information. We will make every effort to provide the information requested in an accessible format and seek to correct any accessibility issues on our website.
