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.

Student Conduct - 3240

Code: 3240

Adopted: 9/24/1986

Last Revised Date: 8/18/2018

Related Procedures:

The District requires that each student adhere to the rules of conduct and submit to corrective action taken as a result of conduct violations. The rules of conduct are applicable during the school day as well as during any school activity conducted on or off campus. Special rules are also applicable while riding on District-provided transportation.

Students are expected to:

  1. Conform to reasonable standards of acceptable behavior;
  2. Respect the rights, person and property of others;
  3. Preserve the degree of order necessary for a positive climate for learning; and
  4. Submit to the authority of staff and reasonable corrective action imposed by school employees and respond

The District also recognizes that schools must take reasonable steps so that students who fail to adhere to the District’s rules and regulations and who receive corrective action for such misconduct have an opportunity to remain engaged or effectively reengaged in their educational program.
