Issaquah School District has partnered with the Washington State Department of Early Learning through the Puget Sound Educational Service District to offer Preschool and Family Assistance Programs for income-eligible children living within the Issaquah School District Boundaries. The Issaquah School District encompasses more than just Issaquah city limits, with boundaries including all of Issaquah and some neighborhoods in Bellevue, Newcastle, Sammamish, Preston, Renton, and Maple Valley.

Early Childhood Education – Special Education Classroom Programs:

ECE Classrooms are currently located at Briarwood Elementary, Discovery Elementary, and Sunset Elementary Schools. Students with a variety of special needs are served within the ECE classroom setting, along with students who participate in the program as Community Peers (see below).  Placement in our ECE classrooms is determined through an evaluation process, and students must meet eligibility criteria. Each ECE session runs 4 days per week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday for 2-1/2 hours per day. Each child’s home address determines the site-location and placement in a morning or an afternoon session. Transportation is provided for students who meet the eligibility criteria for the ECE Program.  

Early Childhood Education – Community Peer Program:

Issaquah School District offers Community Peer Positions in our ECE Special Education Classroom Program (see above). A Community Peer is defined as a child who is following a typical pattern of early development who has turned 3 by April 15th of the year prior to enrollment.  Community Peers are referred by their parents and selected at each ECE school site. We select Community Peers with strong verbal skills in English, who demonstrate the ability to participate in group and play situations with age appropriate independence and social behavior, and have age appropriate small and large motor skills.
