Regulations Manual

Alterations for the 2021-22 school year

Some of the regulations may not be in effect as written given current guidance and/or emergency rules from the state legislature, OSPI, the State Board of Education and other governing bodies. Please see our Returning to School 2021-22 FAQ page for more information on practices that may be altered at this time.

Administrative Regulations Manual & Procedures

Under Policy Governance®, within the directives and limitation listed in the Board Governance Policies, the Board delegates the development and implementation of Administrative Regulations and procedures to the Superintendent and staff, except in regard to issues for which they are mandated by law to take direct action. A comprehensive review and revision of all District policies and procedures was completed between August and December 2015, and the conversion to an Administrative Regulations Manual was completed on February 1, 2016.

Regulations establish legal records and standards of conduct for the school district. Regulations can provide a bridge between the School Board's philosophy and goals and the everyday administration of programs.

The Issaquah School District is continually updating Regulations and procedures to keep current with state laws and regulations as well as best practices. Regulations or procedures on this website may be in transition or in process of being revised.

2000 - Instruction

Extra-Curricular Program - 2150

Code: 2150

Adopted: 9/24/1986

Last Revised Date: 8/3/2021

The District recognizes that the goals and objectives of the district, as described in the Ends, can best be achieved by providing a broad offering of purposeful learning experiences, some of which are more appropriately conducted outside of the curriculum of the district. These extra-curricular experiences include those activities which are consistent with the district objectives but are not offered for credit toward graduation. Such activities ordinarily are conducted wholly or partly outside the regular school day.

The District will not exclude any person from participation in the extra-curricular program, deny any person the benefits of such a program or otherwise discriminate against any person in any extra-curricular program on the basis of the categories identified in the district’s Nondiscrimination policy. 

Such activities shall satisfy the following criteria:

  1. The participating students will be currently enrolled in school and have the entry-level knowledge, skills, and or interest to successfully participate in the activity.
  2. The group shall be supervised by a qualified staff member, cleared volunteer, or otherwise employed individual of the District.
  3. The cost of the activity should be comparable to the cost of similar activities in neighboring districts and scholarship options will be communicated to families to ensure the cost of the activity is not prohibitive to the student or district. This only applies to the cost to participate in an activity, it does not include optional costs such as competitions, travel, special events, etc.
  4. The activity must comply with Title IX requirements.
  5. All activity must take place on school premises unless approved in advance by the school principal; and
  6. The activity must not be secretive in nature.

A survey will be conducted at least once every three (3) years to assure that the extra-curricular program accurately responds to the needs and desires of both male and female students.
