Chapter 28A.315 RCW
establishes the processes related to the formation of new school districts, the alteration of boundaries for existing school districts, the adjustment of assets and liabilities as needed to coincide with changes, and permits people concerned and affected by school district boundary issues to participate in those changes.
It is not the intent or purpose of the above mentioned legislation to address individual student problems or preferences. That is handled under other state statutes.
The law gives the authority to facilitate and monitor transfer of territory processes to Educational Service Districts (ESDs). To assist in this process, each ESD Board of Directors appoints a Regional Committee on School District Organization to hold public hearings and to act upon district disputed boundary changes.
