WAC 392-400-200

Purpose and application.

The purpose of this chapter is to implement RCW 28A.600.015 by prescribing the substantive and procedural due process rights of students served by any program or activity conducted by, or on behalf of, a common school district: Provided that the enforcement of rules adopted by the Washington interscholastic activity association and like organizations that govern the participation of students in interschool activities, and appeals in connection therewith, shall be governed by rules of the organization that have been adopted pursuant to RCW 28A.600.200. The procedures and standards set forth in this chapter, and those adopted by a school district in conformance with this chapter, shall govern the imposition of corrective action (i.e., discipline, suspension, and expulsion) upon any student by a school district and its agents. The provisions of this chapter are intended to establish the minimum procedural and substantive due process rights of students. School districts are free to establish additional due process requirements and limitations and shall do so as necessary to accommodate the constitutional rights of students as now or hereafter established. For rules regarding student conduct which supplement this chapter see chapter 392-145 WAC governing the operation of school buses, particularly WAC 392-145-015(4) regarding the responsibility of bus drivers and certificated staff members who accompany students for the behavior of students, and WAC 392-145-035 regarding the duty to adopt and post rules, including rules of conduct, governing school bus passengers.
