ISD Renewal Levy will be on the February 11th, 2020 Ballot

The Issaquah School District will be asking voters to approve the renewal of the EP&O levy in February in which to allow the district to continue to support the programs and services funded by the previous  2 year levy, which is expiring in 2020.
