Development, Distribution and Maintenance of Policy Manual   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

In governing the district, the Board has pledged to consider the will and needs of the community. The district's policy manual is developed, distributed and maintained for the purpose of communicating to all those concerned with the governance and operation of our schools the parameters within which our schools will operate.

The Board desires that the community and all district employees have access to the policy manual. The Board welcomes suggestions from the public regarding its adopted policies and regulations. A public copy of the manual shall be maintained in the district central office and each school site for review by students, staff members and any other interested parties during normal business hours.

The Superintendent or designee shall issue copies of the district policy manual to the following:

1. Board members.

2. Central office administrator.

3. Board secretary.

4. Building principals.

5. Negotiating units.

6. Other key district personnel.

Changing times and circumstances may alter the community's point of view. Changes in law may alter what is allowable or what is required. New policies will be necessary and existing policies will require revision.

In addition to introducing new policy and policy revisions when changes in law occur or when a specific need arises, the Superintendent shall maintain procedures for the continuous orderly review of policies at a time allocated for this purpose on the agenda of regular Board meetings. Each policy shall be reviewed at least once every three (3) years. Policies not amended shall be officially readopted by the Board. When Board policies are amended in any way, the Superintendent shall review corresponding administrative regulations to ensure that they conform to the intent of the revised policy.

(cf. 9311 - Formulation, Adoption, Amendment of Policies)

(cf. 9312 - Formulation, Adoption, Amendment of Bylaws)

(cf. 9313 - Administrative Regulations)

The Superintendent or designee shall maintain procedures for distributing to all authorized manual holders copies of new or revised policies, bylaws and regulations as they are adopted. Annually, before the Board's organizational meeting, the Superintendent or designee shall arrange to have all district policy manuals monitored to ensure that all manuals are kept current.
