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.

The superintendent will develop procedures for enrolling students, recording attendance behavior and counseling and correcting students with attendance problems. When enrolling a student who has attended school in another school District, the parent and student will be required to briefly indicate in writing whether or not the student has any history of placement in a special educational program; any past, current or pending disciplinary actions; any history of violent behavior or convictions, adjudications or diversion agreements related to a violent offense, a sex offense, inhaling toxic fumes, a drug offense, a liquor violation, assault, kidnapping, harassment, stalking or arson; any unpaid fines or fees from other schools; and any health conditions affecting the student’s educational needs. If the District receives information that a student has a history of disciplinary actions, criminal or violent behavior, or other behavior that indicates the student could be a threat to the safety of staff or students, the student’s teachers and building security personnel shall be informed.

The District may require students or their parents to provide proof of residency within the District, such as copies of phone and water bills or lease agreements. The District shall not require proof of residency or any other information regarding an address for any student who is eligible by reason of age for the services of the District if the student does not have a legal residence. The District will not inquire into a student’s citizenship or immigration status or that of his/her parents or guardians. The request for enrollment may be made by the student, parent or guardian.

Since accurate enrollment and attendance records are essential both to obtain state financial reimbursement and to fulfill the District's responsibilities under the attendance laws, staff shall be diligent in maintaining such records.
