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.

Video Cameras on School Buses - 6608

Code: 6608

Adopted: 12/11/1996

Last Revised Date: 1/18/2006

The District recognizes that the likelihood of safe operation of the District's school buses is enhanced by appropriate student behavior on school buses. Random placement of video cameras on school buses has demonstrated positive effects on student behaviors. Because random placement of video cameras on its school buses enhances safe bus operations, the District endorses and authorizes the use of video cameras. Students who violate rules of conduct for buses as contained in Regulation 6606 and related procedures are subject to disciplinary action in accordance with Regulation 6606 and Regulation 3240 when such violations are witnessed by the bus driver or other witnesses and/or filmed by District video cameras.

The superintendent shall develop procedures concerning use of videotapes, privacy issues related to viewing of videotapes and driver involvement, and knowledge concerning installation of video cameras and equipment.
