It’s hard to believe it, but the time has already come to begin preparations for the 2023-24 school year! Right now, we are preparing to open the enrollment window for incoming Kindergarten students! Kindergarten marks an important milestone in the lives of our children, as they embark upon the first step in their public school education (or second step, if they were participants in our Transitional Kindergarten program!)
Do you have a child who will be 5 years old by Aug. 31, 2023 and live in the Issaquah School District?

Preliminary work on the budget for the 2023-24 school year continues, with an overarching goal of bringing the district’s expenditures back in line with revenues. At the Jan. 26 School Board meeting, the board will discuss several items that are part of the budget process, including an update on demographics, a review of budget reductions from the past two years, and proposed Budget Development Guidelines.
As a reminder for our high school students and families, registration for our annual Great Careers event closes on Feb. 1. Space is limited – register now! The Feb. 16 event is your opportunity to tour career training programs, meet and talk to a wide range of working professionals and educational representatives who provide a window into careers that you can pursue through on-the-job training, certification, apprenticeship, or two-year degree programs.
