B.13 Policy Adoption - April 2001 Revision
Adoption of new policies or the revision or repeal of existing policies is solely the responsibility of the Board of Education. Proposals regarding policies may only originate with a Board member or the Superintendent. Staff members, students, civic groups, or individual citizens in the District may request that a Board member or the Superintendent sponsor a proposed policy.
The Board will adhere to the following procedure in considering and adopting policy proposals to ensure that such proposals are thoroughly examined before final action:
The Board Policy Committee will review new policies or revisions to existing policies.
After such review, the Policy Committee will follow one of the following courses of action:
(1) The Policy Committee may present the proposed policy as a discussion item for a first reading at a regular Board meeting; and it may recommend that a policy be presented for action instead of discussion at the next regular Board meeting.
The administration will develop a procedural directive for implementation of new or revised policies.
