Purpose

The purpose of the Athletic Code Review Committee is to engage community members in identifying best practice in the implementation of the ‘athletic code’, considering our District’s shift in proactive and preventative disciplinary practices as well as WIAA regulations.  The committee will make recommendations to district administration regarding BSD’s Administrative Procedure 2151P, Interscholastic Activities.

Membership

The committee will include parents/guardians, students, community partners, and staff members (i.e., coaches, advisors, certificated teachers, administrators) from District schools who have an interest in interscholastic activities in Bellevue School District schools. A central office administrator will facilitate the meetings.

Member Responsibilities

We are asking community members to serve on a committee that represents a wide range of experiences and perspectives.  Committee members will be asked to:

  • Attend and participate in scheduled meetings
  • Serve as a communication link to varied constituencies
  • Help facilitate informational meetings for students, parents/guardians, community members, and staff, as needed
  • Assist in analyzing data regarding uses of the athletic code across the District
  • Assist in a review of current procedural language to identify any potential areas of revision
  • Assist in review of research on effective practices and practices of surrounding districts

Ultimately, the committee will apply its research, community feedback, collective personal experiences, other resources and District expertise to make recommendations to district administration to inform any potential update of its procedures related to the application of the ‘athletic code.’
