Regulations Manual

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.

6000 - Administration and Management Support

Mascots and Logos - 6972

Code: 6972

Adopted: 9/17/2002

Last Revised Date: 1/18/2006

Issaquah School District schools will adopt mascots, logos and team names that are (1) free from stereotypes, derogatory or offensive connotations, and (2) not likely to divide the community in significant controversy.

The Board may in its discretion require a change of any existing mascot/logo that fails to meet these criteria.

New school mascots/logos will be selected for proposal to the Board by their local school communities using a democratic process that includes a vote of the student body. The school’s proposed selection will be submitted to the Board for final approval.
