Bonds and Levies

In the Issaquah School District, we are very grateful to voters for their ongoing support of school operation levies and bonds. The children of our community benefit every day from the resources provided by you, the voters and taxpayers.

Why are voters asked to approve levies every two to four years?

By law, operations levies can only be proposed for a period of four years or less. Typically, school districts propose levies of two, three, or four years. After the allotted number of years, the levy expires. Voters must approve a renewal of funding, or local financial support for schools ends. Generally, the levy you are voting on simply replaces one that is about to expire.
