Student Handbook 2024-2025

The guidelines outlined below serve as essential principles for our learning community where students are encouraged to actively explore and engage with diverse groups while embracing their own individuality. Please be aware these guidelines are not all-encompassing, and CHS staff retain the right to take other measures as necessary to ensure a safe and responsive environment dedicated to providing the best possible learning experience for all students.

  • Grading Scales
    Cedarcrest High School utilizes the following standardized grading scale for all classes:
  • Academic Programs
    Academic Letter The academic letter honors and recognizes students who have attained exceptional academic excellence and offers an additional means beyond honor roll recognition to acknowledge and celebrate outstanding student academic achievement. Academic Letter Eligibility Requirements: Student is in 10th grade or higher. Student is enrolled full-time at Cedarcrest (six classes per term) or full-time split between WaNIC and CHS. Student has earned a 3.7 cumulative GPA for all subjects at the end of each academic year. Please note Running Start students are not eligible for CHS academic letters as their academic honors are awarded through the college they attend. Awarding the Letter: Students will be notified of GPA eligibility for the academic letter by the principal or designee. Students are awarded academic letters after meeting the eligibility requirements following the posting of first semester grades. Academic letters are issued one time per year. Academic letters are the same style as athletic letters. Honors Program CHS offers an honors recognition program for students who complete a minimum of five year-long honors or AP courses offered at CHS during their high school career with a grade of “B” or better in each course. It's important to note that Running Start coursework is not eligible for inclusion in the honors program, and for year-long classes, semester grades will be averaged. Students who meet the standard for the honors program will receive a special recognition on their diploma. Honor Roll Honor Roll is published each semester to recognize students earning a 3.5 GPA or above. To be eligible for Honor Roll, a student must be enrolled in at least five classes at CHS. Valedictorian and Salutatorian Honors Valedictorian honors are awarded to the graduating Cedarcrest senior with the highest cumulative grade point average. Salutatorian honors are awarded to the graduating Cedarcrest senior with the second highest cumulative grade point average. In the case of a tie, students with equivalent grade point averages will all be recognized. The GPA used to determine the valedictorian and salutatorian will initially be the cumulative GPA that appears on the transcript at the end of the first semester during the senior year (or at the end of the second quarter for Running Start students). Students’ GPAs will be monitored during the second semester and final grades will determine the Valedictorian and Salutatorian. Please note that modified grade classes are not counted toward the GPA to qualify for honors, and students who receive grades of P/F in core classes are not eligible for Valedictorian or Salutatorian honors.
  • Advisory
    Advisory meets following first block on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This 20-minute mini-period is for disseminating information; meeting with clubs, teams, and special interest groups; attending assemblies, and completing whole school lessons around SEL, digital citizenship, etc.
  • Plagiarism
    Policy will be updated soon.
  • Schedule Changes
    Criteria Schedule change requests will be honored for the following reasons: A student has an incomplete schedule (e.g. no third period class) A student is not enrolled in a course needed for graduation requirements A student is enrolled in a course at the wrong level (e.g. needs to take a pre-requisite or has already taken) A student is enrolled in a course they did not select in the registration process* Timeline Schedule changes will not be made between the closing of registration and the opening of schedule change request process unless extenuating circumstances exist. Information and links to the schedule change request process form (student must complete) will be sent out prior to the start of school. The schedule change request process will open the 1st day of school, September 3rd, and run through Friday, September 6th, at noon. To change a class, students need to make an appointment with their counselor within the first five days of the course. Level changes (e.g. on level to AP/Honors or AP/Honors to on level) are accepted through September 16th. Please note that changes made for other reasons throughout the year may lead to an “F” on a student’s transcript. *Counseling and administration reserve the right to make scheduling decisions as needed to balance class sizes, etc.
  • Transcripts
    Official transcripts are available through the counseling office. Please note that the processing of transcripts usually takes two to three school days. Seniors requesting transcripts will receive the first six at no charge. After this, additional transcripts are available at a cost of $4.00 each. Click here to request a transcript. Transcript Evaluation for Transfer Students Students transferring to Cedarcrest High School who previously attended a school that utilized a different credit system will have the number of credits required for graduation adjusted to ensure equity in credit requirements between the two schools. Transfer Credit Only credit earned from nationally accredited institutions will be accepted and posted on Cedarcrest High School transcripts. All official transcripts must be submitted to the CHS counseling center by June 1st for those credits to be posted for that school year. This is extremely important for seniors wishing to participate in the graduation ceremony.
  • Activity Code of Conduct
    Activities are planned and organized to ensure equal learning opportunities for all participants. Emphasis is placed on sportsmanship, teamwork, skill development, respect, responsibility, and effort. Our goal is to have participants leave our programs as responsible citizens who are able to work with others, give their best effort and to be resilient in a changing world. I. ACTIVITIES The Riverview School District (RSD) Activity Code of Conduct programs are completely voluntary. Students/athletes who elect to participate in the following programs must accept the responsibilities that accompany this privilege. In addition to the rules governing the activities outlined in this contract, every student/athlete must abide by all other Cedarcrest and RSD behavior expectations. Prior to the first day of practice, each participant of the above-named activities will have the “Activities/Athletic Clearance Information Folder” on file with the Athletic Director. Club/Team rules will support this document. II. STUDENT/ATHLETE ATTENDANCE AND BEHAVIOR A student/athlete must be in school for the entire school day that she/he is enrolled in order to participate in an activity, competition or practice that day. Exceptions may be granted for excuses such as medical, dental, court appearances, family emergencies, pre-excused school related activities, or any other circumstance the Athletic Director or Administrator deems appropriate. The Athletic Director or Administrator must approve any exception and should be notified prior to the absence. Students/athletes on suspensions may not practice or engage in an activity. At the high school level, truancy is defined as any amount of time away from class without proper authorization. If a student/athlete is absent the last school day of the week, and the next competition is on a non-school day, the parent/guardian must call the school and notify the Athletic Director or Administrator to explain the absence or the student/athlete will not be allowed to participate. Behavior violations requiring administrative actions are established in the RSD Board Student Conduct/Disciplinary Policy #3100. Violations will be addressed using standard school discipline. Advisors and Coaches will also be notified. Advisors and Coaches set individual and team expectations. Failure to adhere to these expectations or a lack of respect toward self or others could result in suspension or dismissal from the activity. Further, no individual or team expectations can supersede the RSD Activity Code of Conduct. III. GENERAL REGULATIONS Washington Interscholastic Activities Association rules apply in all cases of eligibility, transfer, physical examinations, insurance coverage, starting dates, and in use of school equipment. Letters and awards will be based on individual team criteria. An athlete who has been injured and has received medical treatment cannot participate until a signed release from a health care provider is presented to the Athletic Trainer or Athletic Director. The release form will be kept on file by the Athletic Department. Participants are responsible for any school-owned property checked out to the individual. The replacement for loss or repair of this property due to misuse or negligence will be the responsibility of the participant and her/his parent/guardian. Participants are expected to attend all scheduled practices, meetings, contests and performances whether or not school is in session. Participants must travel on school transportation to and from contests or performances away from the RSD when transportation is provided by the school, unless prior approval is granted by the Advisor or Coach. IV-A. ACADEMIC STANDARDS The student/athlete must have passed all classes that she/he was enrolled in during the previous semester. Incoming 9th graders must have passed all their classes at the conclusion of their 8th grade year in order to be eligible for Fall activities and sports. Failure to do so means the student/athlete will be able to practice but not compete for 5 school weeks. Probation begins on the first academic week of the school year. WIAA rule states that a full week must be a minimum of 3 days. If after 5 weeks, the student/athlete is not passing all classes, she/he shall be ineligible for the remainder of the season. A student/athlete who retakes and passes a failed class during summer school will have eligibility reinstated at the start of the Fall season. To maintain eligibility, the student/athlete must be earning passing grades in all classes. Participants’ grades will be checked weekly by the Athletic Director. If at any time a participant is not earning a passing grade, the participant will be allowed to practice and participate in interscholastic competition for a two-week probationary period. If at the end of a two-week grade check the participant is not passing all classes; the participant will be allowed to practice but not participate in interscholastic competition for two weeks. If at the end of a four-week grade check the participant is not passing all classes, the participant will be removed from the team. Any participant who is placed on the non-participate list twice for the same class during a season, will be removed from the team. IV-B. ACADEMIC STANDARDS A student/athlete shall be passing all classes to be eligible for competition. Grades will be checked weekly through the Athletic Director’s office beginning with the second week of each sports season. Any student/athlete found not to be maintaining scholastic standards will be placed on probation and suspended from competition for a period of one week beginning with the following Monday through Saturday. The Athletic Director’s office or Coach will have a conference with all identified student/athletes. The student/athlete is still required to attend practice but will not be allowed to (suit up for) participate in competition or travel with the team to away contests. A student/athlete placed on probation will have grades checked weekly through the Athletic Director’s office. Cedarcrest recognizes it is the responsibility of the student/athlete to take the necessary measures to improve their grades. Should a student/athlete on probation raises all grades to passing, the student/athlete is eligible to participate in competition after the week of probation is completed. If a student/athlete has a failing grade (on probation) for two consecutive weeks, the student/athlete must attend a supervised study session, if available. If the student/athlete chooses not to attend an available study session, she/he will be dropped from the team. A grade of “Satisfactory” may be used for a grade check and is considered passing. Calculating a grade as “Satisfactory” is up to the discretion of the teacher. A grade of “Incomplete” shall be considered a failing grade. However, the student/athlete will be eligible to compete immediately upon successful completion of work, and when that work changes the “Incomplete” to a passing grade. Calculating a grade as “Incomplete” is up to the discretion of the teacher. V. ALCOHOL; CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES; ILLEGAL USE OF LEGEND DRUGS; AND TOBACCO (CONSUMPTION, POSSESSION, TRAFFICKING, USE, ETC.) This section of the code applies 24 hours a day throughout the season. When student/athletes are off campus where illegal use of alcohol, controlled substances, and/or drugs is occurring, participants who do not leave the situation immediately are in violation of the RSD Activity Code of Conduct policy. Should a violation occur at a Riverview School District facility or at a school-approved activity off-campus, the standard school discipline sanction will also be invoked. Offenses under this category will be cumulative throughout the student/athlete’s RSD career. Alcohol, Drugs, Paraphernalia, and Illegal use of Legend Drugs (drugs that are legal only through prescription) 1st offense: Student/athlete will be excluded from practice and competition for 60 participation days. This can be reduced to 20 participation days if a student/athlete participates, at the parent/guardian and or student/athletes own expense, in a school-approved assessment program and follow the recommendations of the assessment. (A participation day is defined as a day in which a team has a regularly scheduled practice or competition.) 2nd offense: Any second code violation will result in the student/athlete being suspended from participation for one calendar year from the date that the Administration validates it to be a code violation. (A participation day is defined as a day in which a team has a regularly scheduled practice or competition.) 3rd offense: A third code violation by a current sixth, seventh or eighth grader will result in loss of eligibility for the remainder of the student/athlete’s middle school career and through her/his ninth-grade year. Any subsequent violation will result in the loss of eligibility for the remainder of the student/athlete’s high school career. A third code violation by a current high school student/athlete will result in exclusion from participation in all activities covered by this code for the remainder of her/his high school career. (A participation day is defined as a day in which a team has a regularly scheduled practice or competition.) Tobacco 1st offense: Student/athlete may not practice or compete for 10 participation days from the day of the violation. (A participation day is defined as a day in which a team has a regularly scheduled practice or competition.) 2nd offense: Student/athlete may not practice or compete for 60 participation days. This can be reduced from 60 to 20 participation days if the student/athlete enrolls and completes a school-approved tobacco education class. (A participation day is defined as a day in which a team has a regularly scheduled practice or competition.) VI. ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS The following check list is provided to assist student/athletes in meeting the requirements to participate in any activity. The following must be on file in the athletic office: Completed and signed Athletic Clearance Information Packet Completed Physical Examination Form Purchased ASB card Paid Participation Fee and all fines cleared Read and signed Concussion Information Sheet Completed and signed Emergency Information Card including insurance documentation and RSD Activity Code of Conduct understanding and agreement VII. GRIEVANCE/APPEAL PROCEDURES/DUE PROCESS Student/athletes and/or parents/guardians who have a concern with any facet of the RSD Activity Code of Conduct must follow these procedures: The student/athlete should first contact the Advisor or Coach to discuss the situation. Face to face communication during regular school hours is always the preferred method. If resolution is not found, parent/guardian should contact the Advisor or Coach to discuss the situation. If necessary, following discussion with the Advisor or Coach, parent/guardian should contact the Athletic Director or the ASB Advisor to discuss the situation. If you feel aggrieved after completing the above actions (steps 1 through 3), you may request an informal conference with the Principal for the purpose of resolving the grievance. If you are not satisfied with the building level conference outcome, you may, upon two (2) school business days' prior notice, present your written and/or oral grievance to the District Hearing Officer. If the grievance is not resolved with the District Hearing Officer, the parent/guardian and student/athlete, upon two (2) school business days’ prior notice, shall have the right to present a written and/or oral grievance to the Board of Directors during the Board’s next regular meeting. A closed meeting may be held for the purpose of considering the grievance. The Board shall notify the student/athlete, parent/guardian of its response to the grievance within ten (10) school business days after the date of the meeting. Please note above decisions made by district personnel (Advisor, Coach, Athletic Director, Principal and District Hearing Officer) shall continue notwithstanding implementation of the grievance procedure unless the Principal or designee elects to postpone such action.

Download the ParentSquare app: iOS - iOS Store Android - Google Play Store For complete access to messages and alerts, it is advisable to download the mobile app:
  • Absences
    Studies show that regular attendance is a critical factor for student success. Regular attendance is not only correlated with higher grades and test scores but also with students being more engaged in their classes and more connected to their classmates and teachers. Students who miss more than 50% of a class period are considered absent. It is important for students to sign in an out at the Attendance Office, so they do not receive an unexcused absence for that period. Excusing Absences State law requires verification of all absences. Families can report a student’s excused absences by contacting the Attendance Office at 425-844-4806 or chsattendance@rsd407.org. Student absences can also be excused through Family Access under Attendance. Attendance Notifications Attendance concern letters will be emailed to families following students’ 5th, 7th, and 11th absences. Leaving Campus Cedarcrest High School is a closed campus, meaning leaving campus without prior permission will not be excused. For this reason, it is important for students to sign in and out. Please note that appropriate disciplinary consequences will be assigned to students who leave campus without permission. Pre-Arranged Absences Early dismissals and pre-arranged absences should be arranged with paperwork handed into the Attendance Office prior to an absence. Please note that pre-arranged absences are considered excused absences, but they are still absences. Families are strongly encouraged to schedule family vacations to coincide with school vacations. Make-Up Work for Excused Absences Students are responsible for working with their teachers to make-up any assignments missed during an absence. Assignments for long-term, excused absences can be arranged for students through the Attendance Office.
  • Tardies
    To be fully engaged in their learning, it is important for students to be to class on time. Following the REDD Way means being in the classroom ready for class when the tardy bell sounds. Students are allotted four tardies during the course of a school week. When students hit their fifth tardy, they will be assigned a lunch detention. If students continue to accrue more than five tardies over consecutive weeks, they may be assigned multiple lunch detentions or after school detentions.
  • Running Start Students
    If a student is taking classes at both Running Start and Cedarcrest High School, all policies and procedures regarding attendance and grades for CHS courses are applicable. Running Start classes do not take precedence over CHS classes (required or elective). Please remember to account for transportation time between both institutions when developing a schedule for dual enrollment. Other Reminders: Students enrolled in Running Start are required to obtain a CHS parking permit if they wish to park on campus. Additionally, Running Start students need to adhere to their assigned CHS class schedules and avoid being on campus outside of these designated times.
  • Balloon Policy
    While we understand and share parents' enthusiasm for commemorating their students' special occasions with balloon deliveries, we must emphasize that Cedarcrest maintains a strict policy against balloons on campus. This policy is driven by the presence of students who suffer from severe allergies to materials commonly found in most balloons. Exposure to these materials can trigger severe allergic reactions. Moreover, balloons have the potential to disrupt the teaching and learning process, and if inadvertently left or released within the premises, they can trigger security motion detectors outside of regular operating hours. For the safety and comfort of all our students and staff, we kindly request your cooperation in refraining from sending or arranging balloon deliveries to the school.
  • Closed Campus
    Cedarcrest High School is a closed campus, meaning disciplinary consequences will be assigned to students who leave campus without permission. If a student needs to leave campus during the school day, they should properly check out through the Attendance Office.
  • Restricted Areas
    The following areas are restricted for Cedarcrest students during the school day, in line with our closed campus policy. It's essential to respect these boundaries to ensure a secure and focused educational environment: Restricted Areas: 1. 150th NE and Adjacent Property 2. Student Parking Lot Areas (outside of arrival and dismissal times) 3. Multi-Age Campus 4. Athletic Fields 5. Forested Areas Please note that students found in restricted areas may be subject to having their possessions searched if it is believed a behavioral violation has occurred.
  • Campus Visitors
    Since Cedarcrest High School is a closed campus, only students enrolled at Cedarcrest are permitted on the campus during school hours. Prospective students may arrange a tour of the campus through the counseling center and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All outside visitors must check in at the main office and wear a visitor’s pass while on campus. Please note that students are not allowed to bring guests to CHS during the regular school day.
  • Cell Phones
    Being focused in class is important for an authentic and engaging learning experience. This requires connecting with the curriculum and being present and willing to learn. Students can do this by limiting cell phone use and distractions during class time. During class time, CHS students need to store their cell phones in the cell phone pouches and/or charging stations that are equipped in each classroom or have them put away in their backpacks. Cell phones will remain stored for the duration of a class period with the exception of specific teacher direction. Cell phones need to remain in the classroom when students leave during the period for purposes of restroom breaks, water breaks, etc. Students who need support following these expectations will move through the steps of the CHS Behavior Flowchart.
  • Computer and Network Acceptable Use Agreement
    All students are required to have a Computer Use Agreement form on file before they are allowed to access the network. Students under the age of 18 must have the forms signed by a parent/guardian. Students eighteen 18 or over may sign their own form. These forms are completed upon entering CHS and remain valid, unless serious violation of the agreement occurs, until the student graduates. Students violating the terms specified in the agreement form may face disciplinary action as well as restriction of access. Computer and Network Acceptable Use Agreement Form for Students The Riverview School District provides a wide range of computer resources to its students for the purpose of advancing the educational mission of the Riverview School District. As a user of district computers, you are expected to review and understand the Acceptable Use Procedures. You are expected to: Protect your logon information from others. Do not use other users’ passwords. Exercise good judgment. Respect district property and be responsible in the use of the equipment. Do not destroy, modify or abuse the hardware or software in any way. Do not delete or add software to district computers without permission from the IT Department. Do not use district computers for illegal, harassing, vandalizing, inappropriate or indecent purposes. Do not use the Internet to access or process pornographic or otherwise inappropriate material in concert with the district’s Electronic Resources Policy. Notify an adult whenever coming across information or messages that seem inappropriate. Be ethical and courteous. Do not send hate, harassing or obscene mail, discriminatory remarks, or demonstrate other antisocial behaviors. District computers may not be used to interfere or disrupt other users, services or equipment, including distribution of unsolicited advertising (Spam), propagation of viruses and distribution of large quantities of information (videos and other media). Do not assume that because something is on the Internet that you can copy it. Respect copyrights. Do not give out any personal information over the Internet. Violation of any of the above conditions of use may be cause for disciplinary action. Violations may constitute cause for revocation of access privileges, suspension of access to district computers, other school disciplinary action, and/or appropriate legal action.
  • Student Email
    As a 1:1 district, all students will be issued an RSD email account for the purpose of collaborating with other students, communicating with teachers, and turning in assignments. Student email addresses are in the format of username@k12.rsd407.org and include calendar and task management functionality in Office 365. Please note that use of district email is subject to the appropriate use guidelines of district electronic equipment and is subject to filtering and monitoring. Student RSD email accounts remain active until a student graduates or withdraws from the district.
  • ALICE Protocol
    During an active event that puts the safety of students and staff in danger, CHS follows the protocols set in action by the ALICE response framework. If there is a violent incident occurring on or near the campus, we categorize our actions into two phases: Awareness/Communication and Response. Awareness/Communication includes: Situational Awareness, Alert, and Inform Response Options include: Evacuate, Lockdown, and Counter ALICE training emphasizes that in the case of a violent incident, students and staff should attempt to evacuate if an accessible escape path exists. When evacuating, remember: There are two rally points off campus to reunite Leave your belongings behind Help others escape, if possible Keep your hands visible Follow the instructions of any police officers Call 911 when you are safe If there is not an accessible escape path to evacuate, then students and staff should lockdown. Be sure to: Lock the door Blockade the door with anything in your room Spread out in the room, focusing on being out of view of any windows Find something to throw if necessary Remain quiet and calm
  • Evacuations & Natural Disasters
    Awareness and preparation for possible disasters and threats to safety will keep students and staff safe during an unforeseen emergency. General Reminders Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers Take note of the two nearest exits in any facility you visit If you are in an office, stay there and secure the door If you are in a hallway, get into a room and secure the door If evacuating, always assemble with your Advisory teacher If at lunch, leave through the nearest exit and proceed to your assigned Advisory location for emergency evacuations When the Evacuation Alarm Sounds Do not leave the classroom until an announcement to evacuate is made over the PA. The teacher will then grab the emergency backpack and instruct students to evacuate the room. Teacher will clear the room. Teacher will lead students to their designated evacuation location, which should be posted in each room. Teacher will take attendance of all students and then hold up a green card (all students are present and safe) or a red card (there is a student(s) missing or there is an urgent need) Students are to remain quiet during the entire event. A PA announcement will signal the end of the evacuation or provide further instructions. At the end of an evacuation, staff will lead students back to class. Earthquakes During a drill or actual earthquake students and staff should: Drop to their knees under a table or desk with back towards any windows. Cover their heads with an arm and/or clasp hands behind their neck. Hold onto one leg of a piece of furniture ... or brace themselves in a doorjamb. After the tremor of an actual quake has stopped: An announcement will be made with information about the earthquake. When instructed to do so, students and staff will carefully evacuate the building according to the evacuation procedures described above. Wait for the “All Clear” announcement: An evacuation will only end when an “all clear” P.A. announcement is made over the loudspeaker by an administrator.
  • Threats
    Threats are never jokes. Threats made will result in serious consequences including notifying law enforcement. Individual-directed threats of violence or harm are communications that create fear of physical harm to a specific individual or individuals, communicated directly or indirectly by any means. Building-directed threats of violence or harm are direct or indirect communications by any means of the intent to cause damage to a school building or school property (e.g., bomb threats), or to harm students, employees, volunteers, patrons, or visitors. CHS and RSD will address threats of violence or harm in a manner consistent with the district’s safety policies and comprehensive safe school plans. Persons found to have made threats of violence or harm against district property, students, employees, or others will be subject to relevant district discipline policies and will be referred to appropriate community agencies including law enforcement and mental health services. State law provides the district, school district directors and district staff with immunity from liability for providing notice of threats in good faith. Persons who make a knowingly false notification of a threat are subject to appropriate district discipline policies and may be referred for prosecution. Threats can be reported through the Vector Alert Tip Reporting System:
  • Weapons
    Firearms and dangerous weapons are not allowed at school, at school sponsored activities, on school grounds, facilities, or school provided transportation. Students who bring a firearm to school will result in an expulsion from school, including notification of parents and law enforcement. In accordance with RCW 28A.600.420, a school district must expel a student for no less than one year if the district has determined that the student has carried or possessed a firearm on school premises, school-provided transportation, or areas of facilities while being used exclusively by public schools. The Superintendent may modify the expulsion on a case-by-case basis. Enforcement of the dangerous weapons policy is guided by state law RCW 9.41.250. Dangerous weapons also include toy or “dummy” or look-alike objects, or any object which looks or acts like a dangerous weapon and displayed or intimidated with dangerous intent. Knowledge of potential weapons on campus can be reported through the Vector Alert Tip Reporting System:
  • CHS Behavior Flow Chart
    The CHS Behavior Flow Chart describes the responses school staff will use to re-engage students in the REDD Way and behavior expectations that create a safe and responsive learning environment for all students.
  • Conduct & Discipline Guidelines
    Our Discipline Philosophy At Riverview School District, we share a collective responsibility for maintaining a safe, orderly, and inclusive learning environment. Students are expected to avoid disruptive behavior and ensure the well-being of all individuals on school grounds, during school events, on school buses, and in online learning environments. Our guiding principles are embodied in the REDD Way. Restorative Practices We are committed to enhancing student achievement and fostering healthy communities through Restorative Practices. These practices seek to repair and strengthen relationships, reduce antisocial behavior, and build social capital. While traditional consequences may still apply, we are evolving our approach to be more responsive to individual student needs. Consequences are progressive, with increased responses for repeat offenses, and law enforcement may be involved when necessary. Our evolving Restorative Practices align with Washington State law changes to create a more inclusive and supportive educational environment. Student Conduct and the Law At Riverview School District, we expect all students to adhere to local and state laws while on school property, during school-sponsored events, while using school transportation, or when their behavior significantly affects the district's operations. Violations may result in corrective action or consequences, including restrictions from school activities. In cases involving law enforcement or safety concerns, appropriate agencies will be notified. For detailed information on student conduct and disciplinary policies, please refer to District Policy #3241 - Student Conduct, available on the district website.
  • Dress Code
    As a center of work and learning, we need to dress appropriately and safely. Following the REDD Way requires honoring other’s opinions/individuality, being appropriately dressed and avoiding distractions during class time. Students are expected to dress in a manner that is not disruptive to the educational environment nor that may threaten the health and safety of the student or others. Specific examples of inappropriate school attire are, but are not limited to, the following: Clothing that impacts the health or safety of others (i.e. dress associated with gangs or hate groups) Dress that causes damage to school property Dress that causes a substantial disruption of the educational process (i.e. lewd, sexual, gang-related, and/or drug, tobacco, or alcohol-related messages) As a center of work and learning, we require appropriate and safe dress. Adhering to the REDD Way involves respecting others' opinions and individuality, dressing appropriately, and avoiding distractions during class time. Students are expected to wear clothing that does not disrupt the educational environment or threaten the health and safety of themselves or others. Specific examples of inappropriate school attire include, but are not limited to, the following: Clothing associated with gangs or hate groups that impacts the health or safety of others Dress that causes damage to school property Attire that is (or has messages that are) lewd, sexual, gang-related, drug/tobacco/alcohol-related, or otherwise significantly disruptive of the learning environment
