Regulations Manual

Alterations for the 2021-22 school year

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.

Interest in Contracts Gifts - 6115

Code: 6115

Adopted: 9/13/1997

Last Revised Date: 9/1/2008

District administrators shall not

  1. have a vested interest in any contract and/or business relationship which may be made under the supervision of such administrator or which may be made for the benefit of his or her office; or
  2. accept any compensation, gratuity or reward in connection with such contract and/or business relationship from any other person beneficially interested therein.

For purposes of this Regulation, District administrator means all elected and appointed directors of the District, the District superintendent, all assistants of the directors or superintendent, and all persons exercising the powers or functions of a director or the superintendent.

Non-administrative employees of the District shall not

  1. have a vested interest in any District contract with persons or business outside the District which may be made for the benefit or under the supervision of such employee;
  2. accept any compensation, gratuity, or reward in connection with any such contract or potential contract which is the bidding process; or
  3. request or receive anything of personal value as a result of such employee’s influence with respect to any act or proceeding of the District when such act or proceeding benefits those offering or giving the thing of value.

This provision is not meant to prohibit the acceptance of small gifts from students or parents on an occasional basis, however, even the acceptance of these types of gifts must be done with caution. Employees must take precautions to avoid potential conflicts of interest, the appearance of conflicts of interest, or the appearance of inappropriate relationships when presented with any gifts related to their employment or their role as an employee. Employees will maintain proper professional standards by respectfully declining repeated gifts or gifts of significant value. In no case should a gift of any size or nature be accepted if there is any implication or suspicion that the giver may have any expectations of a quid-pro-quo benefit to the giver.
