School Board Governance and Operations

Board Policy Development

Formulation, Adoption, Amendment of Policies

The Board shall adopt policies which shall enable them to act as representatives of the public and ensure public control of education, yet conduct a quality system of education.

The Board shall not attempt to administer these policies, for the Board recognizes that it is the role of the Superintendent to administer and develop regulations for the conduct of the Board’s policies. The Board shall review policies and consider necessary changes on an ongoing basis. In addition, the Superintendent will report to the Board from time to time on the policies in operation and proper changes deemed necessary.

New, amended policies, and/or any policy recommended for rescission shall be
presented to the Board of Education for review and discussion. New and/or amended policies, as well as any policy recommended to be rescinded, will become official after being approved by the Board of Education at two subsequent meetings.

Copies of Board of Education policies will be available in each school building, district office, and the district’s website for reference by district employees and the community.
