209.1 Board Policy Development

The Board of Directors shall develop and maintain a policy manual that provides a codification of its policy actions.  Policies shall be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure relevance to current practices and compliance with the law.

The policies of the Board may be amended or revised by resolution adopted at any regular meeting, provided notice of such change shall have been given at a previous meeting.  The superintendent of schools is authorized to submit written recommendations for revision of any existing policies as he/she deems necessary for the most efficient operation of the District.  The superintendent will notify all employees whenever revisions, additions, or amendments are made.  This notice procedure shall be required except for emergency situations, which shall be determined solely by the Board.

Copies of the policy manual are available in the administrative offices of the District.  They are also available on the District’s website.

When there is no board policy in existence to provide guidance on a matter, the superintendent is authorized to act appropriately under the circumstances surrounding the situation keeping in mind the educational philosophy and financial condition of the school district.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to inform the board of the situation and the action taken and to document the action taken.  If needed, the superintendent will draft a proposed policy for the board to consider.
