The Edmonds School District recognizes extracurricular activities, including interscholastic athletics, as an integral part of the total school experience for secondary school students of the district.

Elementary school students shall not participate in interscholastic sports. The program of interscholastic athletics includes all activities relating to competitive sport contests, games or events, or sports exhibitions involving individual students or teams of students of the district when such events occur between separate schools within the district or with schools outside the district.

All interscholastic activities and events shall be in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA). The schools of the district shall not participate in any out of season athletics that are not sanctioned by the WIAA. The district shall not be responsible or liable for nonschool sponsored programs or for programs that are organized, promoted, or participated in by staff members without approval. The district shall not be responsible for or incur liability for summer and/or out of season activities unless specifically sponsored by the school district.

Special athletic or other extracurricular trips will require board approval. The board will consider and take action on each specific proposal for a high school athletic team or other extracurricular group to participate in competition beyond the WIAA limit of 600 miles round trip.

The superintendent or designee shall annually prepare and present to the board a program of interscholastic athletics for the school year. The superintendent or designee shall prepare rules for the conduct of student athletes and other student participants in extracurricular activities including, but not limited to, prohibiting the use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or controlled substances not prescribed by a physician; infractions of law; and other serious misconduct. A summary of rules and disciplinary actions related to rule violations shall be distributed to each participant and his/her parents prior to the beginning of an athletic season.
