Board Policies and Procedures

What is the difference between a board policy and a procedure?

A board policy:

  • Provides guidelines to chart a course of action.
  • Tells what is wanted — and may include why and how much.
  • Allows discretionary action by the administration in meeting day-to-day problems.
  • Is specific enough to give clear guidance.
  • Should be reviewed on a consistent schedule and can only be modified through formal analysis, review and adoption

A board procedure:

  • Is the responsibility of the superintendent and staff.  The superintendent can change procedures as the need arises.
  • Establishes the mechanics for implementing policy.
  • Lists the steps to be followed.
  • Contains important detail; the do's and don'ts.
  • Is not adopted, but is reviewed by the Board as needed.
