Come Learn About The Renewal Levy On Wed, Nov. 20 6:30-7:30pm

The Issaquah School District Renewal Levy will be on the February 11, 2020 ballot. Don’t know what a Renewal Levy is? Wonder what the levy means for our school? Then join us this Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 6:30-7:30pm in the school library for our General Membership Meeting. Representatives from both the school district and the school board will be present to explain the levy, what it supports, and why, as a parent and a taxpayer, it’s important.
