May 1, 2012
On April 27, with a final count of 22,595 ballots cast for the Issaquah School District bond, King County Elections certified the April 17 special election.
“To say that we are pleased with the results of the bond election would be an understatement,” Issaquah School Board President Chad Magendanz said. “There’s something very magical happening at the Issaquah School District.”
A total of 15,809 votes were cast in favor of the district’s $219 million bond.
“It’s one of those things where we touched everybody, not just parents with children in school,” Superintendent Steve Rasmussen said. “It’s not the board, the administrative staff, the teaching staff — it’s the entire community that comes together.”
