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.

Student Fund Raising for Charitable Purposes - 3540

Code: 3540

Adopted: 3/13/2002

Last Revised Date: 10/8/2010

Related Procedures:

Student fund raising for charitable purposes is permissible when specifically pre-approved by the Building Principal. The charitable purpose must reflect school, District and community values. Funds raised by students for charitable purposes will be considered as “non-associated” student body private funds and will be subject to all District fundraising policies and procedures. These funds will be held in trust in one or more separate accounts within the District ASB or Expendable Trust Fund and will be disbursed for the purpose determined by the student group(s) conducting the fundraiser.

All expenses, including start up-costs, must be paid from the proceeds of the fundraiser. Charitable fundraising is a private activity and District funds or resources cannot be used to cover any fundraising expenses.

All individuals being asked to donate or participate in an event to raise money for charitable purposes must receive a written statement of the purpose of the fundraiser and the intended use of any proceeds. The notice will also state that the proceeds will be held in trust within the ASB or Expendable Trust Fund exclusively for the specified charitable purpose(s).

As provided by RCW 28A.325.030, charitable purpose does not include any activity related to assisting a campaign for election of a person to an office or for the promotion or opposition to any ballot proposition.

Funds shall be disbursed from the ASB/Trust Fund through the normal processes identified by District Regulation and the Finance Office for the distribution of money owed to vendors/organizations.

Prizes shall not be purchased using the proceeds of charitable fundraisers. In addition, rebates and commissions on charitable fundraisers are not allowable.
