Dear SIA Students and Families:
Thank you for your support of the mission and values of Spokane International Academy. We understand the tremendous role education will play in the lives of your children, and we are honored to play a part in that. The purpose of this handbook is to provide useful information that is easily accessible to all students and parents.
This handbook provides academic and general information, policies and procedures, and the SIA Student Code of Conduct. Students and parents are expected to read, understand, and comply with all provisions of this handbook. As a charter school, SIA is a choice program. Some of the expectations may differ from a traditional neighborhood school, however, all of these expectations help us establish a rigorous and safe learning environment for all of our students. It is vital that all members of our community, adults and students alike, fully understand the expectations set forth in this handbook and agree to support them.
SIA’s mission of empowering students with the skills necessary to become leaders who can powerfully transform our communities serves as our “North Star” and our uniting purpose. We have seen tremendous results in the students who have committed to our approach in the early years of our program. As interest in our program grows across the area, we are excited to continue to refine our program and develop more enriching opportunities for our students in the future. We thank you again for your support of the mission of SIA and our efforts to prepare your children for college and career in the future.
