In a letter sent to Issaquah High School families, the school’s principal, Paula Phelps, announced that she would leave her post at the end of the school year to become the district’s executive director of high schools.
“For the past 15 years, this school community has been such a family to me,” Phelps wrote. “I can’t tell you what a rich experience it has been to watch your students learn, grow, laugh and leave here ready to pursue their dreams.”
Phelps said she originally turned down the offer from Superintendent Steve Rasmussen. Now that she is making the move, Phelps told families that the district wants to work closely with them in the process of selecting a new principal. A survey to help shape the selection criteria is on its way, she added.
