Equitable Code of Student Conduct - Secondary

Equitable Conduct Expectations

The Issaquah School District values equity, diversity and inclusion. The district is committed to building and sustaining a welcoming school community. Our district and community are made up of people of different backgrounds, needs and perspectives. Our learning community includes people of varying races, ethnic backgrounds, abilities/disabilities, religions, ages, languages, socioeconomic status, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender expressions or identities.

Student expectations include:

  • Respect each individual, even if that person’s identity is different from your own.
  • Seek to understand your impact on others while seeking to understand other’s intent.
  • Communicate respectfully with others in person, on social media and in any other form.
  • Use what you are learning to use good judgment and make ethical and informed decisions.
  • Take responsibility for your words and actions.

We all have a responsibility to report behavior that interferes with having an equitable and inclusive learning environment that honors and respects people of all identities. If you become aware of any actions that violate the expectations above, we encourage you to speak up through one or more of the following ways:

  • Tell a teacher, staff member or other trusted adult immediately.
  • If you are comfortable and safe doing so, speak up in the moment to encourage more equitable and inclusive talk or action, and/or support those being hurt.
  • Report it anonymously via Issaquah Tip:
