Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave SE, Issaquah, WA

Your child’s teacher will be teaching the district adopted FLASH (Family Life and Sexual Health) and HIV/AIDS curriculum during this school year. To allow you an opportunity to examine the instructional materials and view the videos that may be used, there will be 2 public viewings of the materials at the Issaquah School District Administration Center.

  • Thursday, October 6, 6:00 PM (presentation lasts about 1.5 hours)
  • Saturday, October 8, 9:00 AM (presentation lasts about 1.5 hours)

At the appointed time, there will be an informal presentation. Curriculum staff will be available to answer your questions. The passage of SB 5395, Comprehensive Sexual Education Bill, did not impact the District’s adopted sexual health curriculum. Our current sexual health curriculum content meets the requirements of the bill.

FLASH Instruction:

Under the Federal Hatch Amendment of 1974, all sexual education instructional materials must be available for parent inspection. Parents have the right to exempt their child from sexual health education instruction at any time. The public viewings provide a centralized opportunity to do so. While it is not required for you to attend the parent preview to exempt your child from sexual education, it is necessary to submit your request in writing to your school principal. This must be done each year. To opt out of FLASH, please email your request to opt out to your student's principal and health teacher. You may opt out of the entire FLASH unit or individual lessons.

HIV/AIDS Instruction: Please note – the process of exempting your child from HIV/AIDS education is treated separately from exempting your child out of sexual education.

In recognition of the significant threat that the HIV/AIDS virus presents to the health of the people of our nation, the Washington state legislature passed the Omnibus AIDS Bill in 1988. This law directs local school districts to provide yearly instruction to students in grades 5-12 about the pathology and prevention of the HIV/AIDS virus. The law requires that parents/guardians must preview the HIV/AIDS curriculum which is found within the FLASH curriculum, before exempting your child. This must be done each year. Click here for the opt out form for HIV/AIDS.

It is not necessary for parents to attend a public review session if they do not intend to exempt their children from HIV/AIDS instruction. Being familiar with the curriculum will enhance your ability to talk with your children about this serious health threat. FLASH curriculum can be previewed through the King County Department of Public Health at https://kingcounty.gov/depts/health/locations/family-planning/education.aspx.

Due to copyright laws the detailed FLASH lessons and units cannot be shared electronically. If you are unable to attend one of the above sessions, the curriculum materials will be available to preview in the lobby of the District Administration building during business hours, 8:00 AM-4:00 PM daily from September 19, 2022-October 21, 2022.

Session Location: Issaquah School District Administration Center, 5150 220th AVE SE, Issaquah, WA 98029.

ISD Central Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah, WA 98029

Hello, ISD Community! Today I am excited to share my progress on the first half of my First 100 Days. So far, my work has been centered on listening and learning.

Here's a video I filmed to share a bit about how I've been inspired by our students and staff as I visited our schools and service sites

The next 50 days of the plan are focused on engaging with you. As a part of this phase, I’d like to invite all students, families, community members and staff to a Community Forum from 5-6:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 at the Administration Building, 5150 220th Ave. S.E., Issaquah. I’ll share more about the format and topics soon. 

This event will be hosted in-person only. We will have interpreters available.

Meet Principal Erin Connolly

Hello, Eagle families! One of the best parts about being a principal is getting to build relationships with students, staff and families. A few fun facts about me: My family immigrated to the United States in the 1920s from a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland. My favorite young adult book is “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” I enjoy listening to folk music, and if I could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be tacos. My bucket list includes traveling to all of the continents.
