Code No. 204.1
BOARD POLICY DEVELOPMENT AND SUSPENSION
Board Policy Development
The Board 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 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.
The Board policy manual is available electronically. Persons unable to access the policy manual electronically should contact the Board secretary for assistance.
Copies of changes in Board policy will also be included in or attached to the agenda of the meeting in which the final action was taken to adopt the new or changed policy.
Board Policy Suspension
Generally, the board will follow board policy and enforce it equitably. The board, and only the board, may, in extreme emergencies of a very unique nature, suspend policy. It is within the discretion of the board to determine when an extreme emergency of a very unique nature exists. Reasons for suspension of board policy will be documented in board minutes.
