School Board Policies & Procedures

School Board Policies

PLEASE NOTE:  The School Board Policies page is currently under construction. Do you need help finding a new policy number? Check out the School Board Policy Index for a list of old policies and their new policy numbers. 

In February 2017 the School Board, in partnership with the Washington State School Directors Association's Policy and Legal Department, started the process of reviewing all board policies. This process will take several months. As sections are reviewed and approved by the board, they will be posted to the website.

The role of the Board is to set policy; the role of the administration is to execute it. The Board expresses its policy determinations in the form of written policy statements. The administration implements policy through administrative procedures, rules, memoranda, directives, and daily contacts with staff.
