This project presents the development of a handbook for the parents and students of Vale Elementary School in Cashmere, Washington. The handbook was designed in response to a specific recommendation that surfaced during the Cashmere School District self study process which occurred during the 1988-89 school year. This handbook was designed to both define the policies and procedures of Vale Elementary School, and communicate those policies and procedures to parents and students. The handbook was developed with input from the parents and staff of Vale Elementary School. Handbooks from other elementary schools in central Washington were also consulted in the development of this project. Recommendations included an annual review of the handbook to ensure its validity and appropriateness.
