The board shall review its policies and rules on an annual basis.

Approved: November 18, 1996


The policies, rules and regulations of the board may be amended at any regular, special or adjourned meeting of the board by a majority vote of the members of the board.

A recommendation by an individual or group of citizens or patrons to adopt or amend any policy or rule may be submitted at any regular board meeting. Any action on the recommendation will take place at the next regular meeting of the board unless an emergency is declared. In this case, final action may be taken immediately.

Policy Dissemination

The superintendent shall be responsible for developing a procedure to ensure that persons who have copies of the board policy book receive changes in board policy and the policies which have been amended or deleted are removed from such policy books. Every attendance center shall have a current copy of the policy book which shall be kept in the office of the principal or the superintendent. A copy of the board policy book shall also be kept in the central business office. Each board member shall be furnished a copy of the policy book, and the superintendent may also designate which administrators shall be furnished with copies of the policy book.

The clerk will keep an historical set of board policies which will reflect all revisions, amendments or other actions pertaining to every policy and rule.
