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.

Release of Information Concerning Sexual and Kidnapping Offenders - 4315

Code: 4315

Adopted: 9/13/1997

Last Revised Date: 5/20/2011

Law enforcement agencies receive relevant information about the release of sexual offenders into communities. Law enforcement agencies decide when such information needs to be released to the public. The District has a public safety role to play in the dissemination of such information to staff, parents, students, and the community and will disseminate such information under the following conditions:

  1. Receipt of a specific request from a law enforcement agency that information be disseminated to staff and/or student and parents. In every case where students are notified, parents will be notified as soon as possible.
  2. Receipt of the actual sex offender documents to be distributed. The District may duplicate the sex offender documents, but they will be distributed in the form received from the law enforcement agency or any modifications that will be approved by the law enforcement agency.

The District may provide families at a nearby school notice beyond that provided by the police to protect District students from foreseeable harm while participating in school or school sponsored activities. In such situations, the District will work with law enforcement and legal counsel in determining the appropriate course of action.
