Volunteering During the 2022-2023 School Year
Click here to access the Volunteer Application
While we value our volunteers in so many areas of the work we do in the Issaquah School District, we also must be mindful of our continued efforts to ensure virus mitigation, so that our students stay in classrooms as much as possible this school year. In a typical year, we welcome as many as 9,000 volunteers into our schools. We cannot reasonably allow nor process that many at this time.
To that end, we want to phase in a return of our volunteers by starting with those that support academic and social-emotional programming first. These plans are subject to change as we adhere to guidance from the Department of Health for the state of WA and for King County, the Governor’s office and OSPI, for example. Both parties will work together before each phase to discuss current guidance and any COVID impacts to the community before moving to the next phase of volunteers. This year, COVID vaccination will be required as a part of the volunteer application. *As of summer 2022, COVID vaccination remains a requirement to volunteer.
