The ISD holds event such as “What Every Parent Wants to Know About the Issaquah School District” to help our culturally and linguistically diverse families learn more about schools and programs in the District.

Parents attend information sessions on Elementary, Middle or High school to get a better understanding about school programs, school structure, grading, testing and parent engagement. Events are facilitated by District staff and Family Partnership parent volunteers. Parents have an opportunity to ask questions and talk to District staff and Family Partnership parent volunteers.
