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.

Conflicts Between Regulation(s) and Bargaining Agreements - 5021

Code: 5021

Adopted: 9/4/1987

Last Revised Date: 8/10/2012

Except where expressly provided to the contrary, personnel regulations apply to the staff of the District. However, where there is a conflict between the terms of a collective bargaining agreement and the District's Regulations, the law provides that the terms of the collective bargaining agreement will prevail in regard to the staff covered by that agreement.

When a matter is not specifically provided for in the appropriate negotiated contract, the District's regulations will govern.
