News from the district

Highly Capable Testing

Highly capable testing for second grade students will occur at all elementary schools January 14 through January 17 and continue March 10 through March 13. Students who are identified as “most highly capable” will be invited to enter either SAGE or MERLIN in the 2020-21 school year. Second grade students attending private or home-based schools are invited to participate. Contact your neighborhood school for more information about how to participate. More information about the Issaquah School District Highly Capable Program and testing for second grade students is available on the Highly Capable Issaquah School District webpage.

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 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.
