Issaquah students will not have class May 19, as district teachers join the statewide protest decrying the lack of legislative action to fully fund basic education.
Issaquah School District Superintendent Ron Thiele announced the one-day walkout in an email May 13, adding that a make-up day will be added to the end of the school year.
Before-school activities are canceled May 19, but after-school activities, including sports, will continue as usual. Schedules for state assessments underway will be adjusted at the school level, Thiele said.
The superintendent added that he could not “endorse” the walkout, and he regretted the “negative impact” to district students and families. Read more

Ron Thiele maybe the associate superintendent now, but come July 1, he’s dropping the associate and stepping in as the superintendent of the Issaquah School District. Thiele took the time last week to answer a few questions from The Issaquah Press.
Q: What is your overarching education philosophy?
A: Public schools should strive to create the best overall experience possible for every student in order to prepare them to embrace the academic and practical challenges in front of them. My philosophy is very aligned with the mission of the Issaquah School District.
