About this manual
The 2015 Common School Manual is a compilation of most of the laws enacted by the state legislature governing common school system operations and other titles containing laws affecting school operations. Also included are the administrative rules adopted to enhance the laws. This manual is printed in two volumes, 1) RCWs; 2) WACs.
We are no longer accepting orders for the printed version of the 2015 CSM. The 2016 CSM will be available by March 2016.
