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.

Recycling and Waste Stream Reduction - 6865

Code: 6865

Adopted: 9/13/1997

Last Revised Date: 1/18/2006

Related Procedures:

The Issaquah School District views recycling as a desirable alternative to landfills, incinerators, and other means of dealing with the waste stream. The District goal is to comply with (or exceed) that of King County.

The District encourages the teaching staff to integrate recycling information, goals and actions into the curriculum whenever possible. All adults affiliated with the District shall model desirable recycling practices.

Waste-reduction at the source, reusing materials as appropriate, recycling and purchasing recycled products are all integral parts of the effort to impact the solid waste stream and are strategies that employees in all buildings in the Issaquah School District will follow.

In making decisions governing purchases of materials, District employees will place a higher priority upon recyclable and recycled materials than upon those which cannot be recycled or are not composed of recycled materials; cost, durability and safety concerns may prevail.

Whenever practicable, the District shall encourage (and may require) its contractors and consultants to use recyclable and recycled products in fulfilling their contractual obligations.
