The Board of Education develops policy with the assistance of management, and with input from education partners and the public. The policy development process is outlined in Policy 2500.
There are two other administrative directives and guidance documents:
- Procedures are developed by senior management to offer clear direction and guidance to carry out board policies, goals and objectives.
- Practices are developed by staff and approved by department heads to provide information and assistance to various department members to effectively and correctly complete their work.
Numeric Order and Filing of Procedures
The Procedures are numbered and issued using the policy number as the authority for the issuance of a policy; the numbering format, therefore, will be that each procedure under a policy would be given an extension number starting with one.
