Board Policies

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. 

The district will also be using a New Board Policies Website wherein you may view our policies; on this website, you may translate policies into more than 90 languages with one click on the top right-hand corner. Click on the "English" tabs, and the available languages will be displayed.
