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.

Traffic Safety Education Procedure - 2178P

Code: 2178P

Adopted: 1/1/2011

Last Revised Date: 12/28/2015

The following procedures shall be in effect:

  1. The superintendent shall designate a staff member in charge of the District's traffic safety education program. The program supervisor shall ensure that the District’s traffic safety education program receives annual approval from OSPI.
  2. For instructional purposes, the traffic safety education instructor shall use the District's curriculum guide for traffic safety education.
  3. Each student enrolled in a traffic safety program shall meet the objectives and competencies listed in the District curriculum guide as a condition of successful completion of the program.
  4. Traffic safety education courses provided by the District shall be conducted during daylight hours (may be extended to no later than 5:00 p.m. during winter months) except that night driving experiences may be provided.
  5. Recognizing that the District can serve a limited number of students each year, certain enrollment criteria are established. Students enrolled in private schools, home-schooled students, and students who have received a certificate of educational competence (GED) shall have equal access to enroll as part‑time students. Enrollment criteria in descending order of priority are
    1. grade level in school (12th grade‑‑highest),
    2. date and time of registration.
  6. Students must have a valid drivers permit on the first day of class or within seven days of the first class. Students must be at least 15 1/2 years of age by the first day of class. Students enrolled in traffic safety during the regular school year must reside in the District or be students who have been released by another District to attend school, or file their parents’ intent to home school, in this District.
  7. Each student will be required to pay the established fee at the time of enrollment or present evidence that he/she is eligible to have the fee waived or reduced. To be eligible for a refund of the paid fee, students must drop from the program and request a refund within 5 days following the program starting date.

    The fee for traffic safety education will be set by dividing the unreimbursed cost of the program by the number of students projected to enroll and their projected eligibility rate for a fee waiver or reduction. In the event that the fee generates money beyond that necessary to support the program during that fiscal year, the excess money will be applied to future traffic safety education program needs. If the excess potion of the fee exceeds 25% of the total fee, students will be notified that they may be refunded the difference. Any unrefunded amounts will be accrued to support future traffic safety education program needs.
  8. Students who have attended more than 50% of the program's scheduled classes and have completed at least 90% of the program's objectives, but have not completed all program objectives, shall receive an "incomplete" and shall be provided the opportunity to achieve successfully all objectives during the current school year and ensuing summer. Students failing to do so will receive a failing grade.
  9. Students who receive a failing grade or have dropped from a program shall pay an additional fee when re-entering the program.
  10. Students transferring from the District prior to attending 50% of the program's scheduled classes shall be reimbursed the collected fee.
  11. Students entering the program from another District shall pay the regularly assessed fee if the transferring District indicates the student had attended less than 50% of the program's scheduled classes in that District.
