The Military Verification window for the 2018-2019 school year is now open, and will close Friday, November 30th. If you have not yet verified your family’s status, the following instructions will guide you through the process; verification must be completed for each student in your family:

A prompt to Go to Military Verification for <your student’s name> will appear at the top of the Home screen. If it does not, click on the Military Verification tab on the left.
Click on your student’s name.
Click on 1. Verify Military Family and select your family’s status; click on Complete Step 1 and move to Step 2 .
Verify the information and click on Submit Military Verification to complete the process.
School districts are required by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to collect data regarding ethnicity from active duty military families as well active reserves, all branches, and the Washington National Guard. Reasons for collection of the data include:
  • to better provide additional services to the students;
  • to afford a closer look at the test scores for these students, possibly showing the need for increased services to keep them on track for on-time graduation.
If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Nelson at nelsons@rsd407.org or 425-844-4680. Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this task!

Weapons
State Law (RCW 28A-600.420 and School District Policy 3200 prohibit the possession of firearms and weapons at school. This law pertains to guns, knives, clubs, firecrackers, and explosives. Dangerous weapons also include toy or "dummy" or look-alike objects. The full text of the law and the definitions of dangerous weapons, as provided RCW9.41.250 and RCW 9.41.280, are on file in the school office. Possession of firearms on school property will result in a one year mandatory expulsion, subject to appeal with notification to parents and law enforcement. Any violations of these guidelines by students constitutes grounds for expulsion from the Riverview School District and the public schools of the State of Washington and Board Policy.
Nondiscrimination
