(1) It shall be the responsibility and duty of each school district to adopt, publish, and make available to all students and parents written rules which state with reasonable clarity the types of misconduct for which discipline, suspension, and expulsion may be imposed. In addition, written procedures for administering corrective action shall be developed and reviewed periodically as follows:
(a) Each school district shall provide for the development with parent and community participation of written procedures for administering corrective action at each school as required by RCW 28A.600.020
(b) In a manner consistent with the district procedures developed pursuant to (a) above, the principal and certificated employees in each school building shall confer at least annually for the purpose of developing, or reviewing, or both, building discipline standards and the uniform enforcement of those standards, as required by RCW 28A.400.110
(2) Rules that establish types of misconduct pursuant to this section must have a real and substantial relationship to the lawful maintenance and operation of the school district including, but not limited to, the preservation of the health and safety of students and employees and the preservation of an educational process which is conducive to learning.
(3) The rules set forth in this chapter, the rules of a school district that establish types of misconduct pursuant to subsection (1) above, and the written procedures of a district for administering corrective action adopted pursuant to subsection (1)(a) above, shall be published and made available to all students and parents on an annual basis. If a school district chooses not to distribute such rules to all students and parents, then notice which describes the contents of such rules and specifies the person(s) to contact for a copy thereof shall be provided to students and parents on an annual basis in a manner reasonably calculated to come to their attention.
