Levy Committee Reps Needed!
The Issaquah School District asks local voters to approve levies to pay for educational enrichments that the state does not fund, including the seven period day at two of our comprehensive high schools, mental health and counseling support, safety and security measures, activities/clubs/sports, etc., equivalent to about 15 percent of the operations budget. Because our current levies expire next year, the District is forming a community committee now to help plan the renewal/replacement of the Educational Programs and Operations Levy. (Formerly referred to as the M & O Levy)  If you are interested in representing Creekside on the committee, please pick up an application in the main office and return it by May 15. 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 a minimum of two Wednesday evenings in June. Please email Tera Coyle for more information at CoyleT@Issaquah.wednet.edu
