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.
