From the President:  

Welcome back! I hope you had a restful and enjoyable summer. Before we jump back into the fast lane I would like to thank all the members of the Issaquah Education Association for your support and assistance last year.

I learned a lot in this new role last year and I look forward to continuing to work with you this coming year.  Your association and I are committed to providing support and advocacy for our members and our profession.

As you are probably aware the Issaquah School District continues to grow and change. This week we welcomed almost 180 new staff to our district at the New Teacher Academy.

I look forward to meeting many of you as I get out to the buildings this fall. Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions about your assignment, evaluation, or your Collective Bargaining Agreement (Contract)
