School Board Policies

The school board of SoWashCo Schools approves policies that reflect the philosophies and beliefs of the district. 

School board policy manuals inform the community on a variety of issues such as internal school board operations, student conduct, investments and use of school district facilities and equipment. The level of detail in policy is dependent upon the complexity of the subject matter and the philosophy of the school board.

The purpose of this policy is to promote educational equity and inclusion for each student, staff, and family member. This policy requires a collective systemic culture that values equity. This policy will ensure educational equity is implemented districtwide with fidelity, consistency, connection, and coherence.

School Board officers are charged with the duty of carrying out the responsibilities entrusted to them for the care, management, and control of the public schools of the school district.  The purpose of this policy is to delineate those responsibilities.
