Regulations Manual

Alterations for the 2020-21 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 Reopening 2020-21 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. Please contact Tricia Romo, Public Records Officer, if you have a specific policy question or to double-check on a Regulation.

District Notification of Juvenile Offenders - 3143

Code: 3143

Adopted: 1/18/1986

Last Revised Date: 12/28/2018

A court will notify the common school in which a student is enrolled if the student has been convicted, adjudicated, or entered into a diversion agreement for any of the following offenses: a violent offense, a sex offense, a firearms offense, inhaling toxic fumes, a drug offense, liquor offense, assault, kidnapping, harassment, stalking or arson.  If the District receives this information instead of the principal, the District will provide it to the principal.

The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) will notify the Board of directors in writing at least thirty days before a juvenile convicted of a violent offense, a sex offense, or stalking is discharged, paroled, given authorized leave, or otherwise released to reside in the District. The District will ensure that this written information is provided to the pertinent building principal. The DSHS Sex Offender School Attendance Program assists with ensuring that juvenile sex offenders, committed to Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration (JRA), do not enroll in the same school as their victim or their victims’ siblings. If there is a conflict in schools, DSHS program staff will work with JRA to have the offender moved to another school.

A community residential facility to which an adjudicated juvenile is transferred will provide written notice of the offender’s criminal history to the District if the juvenile is attending school in the District while residing at the community residential facility. The District will ensure that such written notice is provided to the pertinent building principal.

When the principal receives notification of juvenile offenders as described above, he or she must provide the information received about the student to every teacher of the student and to any other personnel who, in the judgment of the principal, supervises the student or for security purposes should be aware of the student's record. The information that the principal must provide is based on any written records that the principal maintains or receives from a juvenile court administrator or a law enforcement agency regarding the student.

Any information received by a principal or school personnel under this Regulation is confidential and may not be further disseminated except as allowed by the statute for transfer of records (RCW 28A.225.330), other statutes and case law, or the Family and Educational and Privacy Rights Act, 20 U.S.C. Sec. 1232g et seq.

If a student is convicted of, adjudicated for, or has entered into a diversion agreement for assault, kidnapping, harassment, stalking, or arson against a teacher, then that student will never be assigned to that teacher’s classroom. Additionally, if a student is convicted of, adjudicated for, or has entered into a diversion agreement for assault, kidnapping, harassment, stalking, or arson against another student, the offending student will never be assigned to the same class as the other student.

Convicted juvenile sex offenders will not attend a school attended by their victims or their victims’ siblings. Offenders and their parents or guardians will be responsible for providing transportation or covering other costs related to the offenders’ attendance at another school.
