2020 Replacement Levy Discussion At The Nov. 20 PTSA Meeting
Join us in the Newcastle Library on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 6:30-7:30 to learn more about the 2020 Issaquah School District Replacement Levy. On February 11, 2020, voters will have the opportunity to replace the levy approved in 2018 that expires at the end of 2020, maintaining current funding for programs such as career and technical education, mental health counselors, dual language, and safety. Representatives from both the Issaquah School District and the School Board will be present to share facts about the levy vote and answer questions. 

We will then vote on whether or not to endorse the levy as a PTSA. Please join us as we need as many community voices present as possible.
