Board Policy and Administrative Procedural Directive

Board Policies are approved by the Board of Education and Administrative Procedural are approved by the Superintendent and his/her Cabinet. Board policies are statements of values and vision. Administrative procedural directives are documents to outline implementation of board values and vision. Board policies begin with letters that loosely align with the index code of the National School Board classification system. Administrative procedural directives are titled by topic.
