School District Authority, Jurisdiction & Transparency

SCHOOL DISTRICT AUTHORITY, JURISDICTION & TRANSPARENCY

This Parent/Student Handbook states guidelines for student rights and responsibilities and is not intended to provide legal advice. It does not create any contractual rights, and the school district has the discretion to modify the provisions of this handbook at any time. Each school's procedures supplement the Parent/Student Handbook and should be referred to for more specific guidelines. If a provision of an individual school's procedures is inconsistent with this Parent/Student Handbook, this handbook will supersede.
 
The provisions of the Parent/Student Handbook are in effect:
• During regular school hours and/or on school property.
• During transportation of students.
• At times and places where appropriate school administrators and staff have jurisdiction including, but not limited to, school-sponsored events, field trips, athletic functions and other school-related activities.
• On the way to or from school or a school-related event.
 
Additionally, the principal, any public school official or designated chaperone is authorized to take administrative action when a student's misconduct away from school during a school activity may have a detrimental effect on the student, other students, staff or on the orderly educational process.

The principal has the responsibility to take discretionary action any time the educational process is threatened with disruption. Nothing in the following is intended to prevent a staff member, teacher, principal or other administrator from using his/her best judgment with respect to a particular situation.
 
Walla Walla Public Schools is committed to transparency and equity and access. Parents, guardians and students may access the contents of the handbook on the school district's website in its entirety. Those who need assistance, printed materials, electronic devices and other support related to the handbook may request this by contacting your child's school or the Walla Walla Public Schools District Office.
