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.

The Issaquah School District is committed to providing learning experiences that foster students’ lifelong healthy habits. Nutrition is an essential part of academic performance, because children who eat well-balanced meals are more likely to be healthy and are therefore better prepared to learn in school. Because the District supports physical activity and good nutrition at all grade levels, it is the District Regulation to:

  • Provide students access to nutritious foods
  • Encourage healthful activity and fitness for life
  • Make accurate information available about these topics

The District shall develop and implement comprehensive District-wide nutrition procedures consistent with state and federal requirements for Districts participating in the National School Lunch Program.

This program will set guidelines for all foods and beverages sold to students during the school day:

  • In Food Service programs
  • In vending machines
  • In snack bars
  • In school stores
  • In school sponsored activities, including fundraising

The superintendent or designee shall establish an advisory committee to assist in the development, implementation, and the periodic review and update of the local school wellness Regulation. Selection of advisory committee members will be selected by the superintendent or designee and may include students, parents, representatives of the school food authority, teachers of physical education, school health professionals, the school board, school administrators, and the general public. Each advisory committee meeting will be open to the general public and will have a public comment period available at the beginning of each meeting. In addition, public comments are accepted.
