The Washington Unified School District's Board of Education sets
policies based upon recommendation from the Superintendent. Many
policies have a set of procedures, which are approved by the Board of Education after review by the appropriate staff. Policies establish
direction and structure for the district. They set the goals, assign
authority, and establish controls that make school governance and
management possible. School board policies have the force of law equal
to statutes or ordinances.
