A message from the High School Scheduling Committee
Last June, with the passage of the Educational Programs and Operations Levy, Superintendent Thiele commissioned a High School Scheduling Committee to study possible changes to high school schedules. This committee, comprised of teachers, parents, and building administrators from each comprehensive high school was assembled along with a District technical team to advise and assist the committee with their work. The committee first met in June to review the charter and begin.
Sending out surveys to solicit input from students, staff, and community members was the committees first priority and that task has been completed. In addition to surveys, the committee agreed it would hold two community input meetings to hear directly from community members and listen to their thoughts on what an optimal high school schedule would look like.
To that end, two community input meetings have been scheduled for Monday, October 15 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, October 25 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the ISD Administration Center Board Room located at 565 NW Holly Street, Issaquah.
The meetings are for interested community members to provide input about their values and priorities for a HS schedule in an informal and conversational setting. The committee will then consider those values and priorities as it works to craft a proposal for the Superintendent. The agenda will include an update from the technical team who will review its charter and direction from Superintendent Thiele and inform the group on the work the committee has done thus far. After that short presentation, meeting participants will have an opportunity to discuss and provide input in small conversation groups facilitated by district staff.
Information on the High School Scheduling Committee, including the committee charter and upcoming meeting minutes and agendas is availableon our website.
We value your input as the committee works towards a recommendation to the Superintendent and look forward to meeting you. If you are unable to attend, please email your thoughts to:HSSchedule@issaquah.wednet.edu.
