Snow Make Up Days - Thursday, June 27th
March 12, 2019 -Issaquah School District E-News
This past February’s historic snowfall created many challenges for our community and school system. Now that it appears our snowy winter weather is subsiding, we can communicate the remainder of our school year calendar. In accordance with our negotiated agreements and approved 2018-19 school year calendar, the six days of school missed due to weather will be added to the end of the current school year calendar. The last day of school is now Thursday, June 27. High School Graduation dates will not change.

Every school district in our region has a unique set of circumstances related to how they might make up snow days. As a result, you will see districts implementing different plans. Options such as built in snow make-up days, conversion of non-student professional development days, state waivers or renegotiating instruction time are not viable options for the ISD this year. With this recent snow event resetting our common experience, the District is exploring opportunities to build in more snow day make-up options to our future calendars. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible.


March 5, 2019 -Issaquah School District E-News 

We have received many questions about how the ISD is going to make up the lost instructional time due to the recent snow days. Some people have called attention to a memo issued by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction stating it will accept waiver applications for the recent snow days. While this is correct, the Basic Education Act also requires a number of minimal instructional hours and those instructional hours cannot be waived.

Therefore, per the current negotiated calendar approved by our staff and school board, we will be adding days to the end of the school year. We will also explore waivers and other options to attempt to reduce the number of added days at the end of the school year. Graduation for Seniors at LHS, SHS, and IHS will still be on June 13 and GEHS on June 12. Please watch for further communications from the Issaquah School District E-News on this in the coming weeks.
