Board Policies and Administrative Procedures
Welcome to the policies and procedures section of our website. One of the questions we get asked a lot is “What is the difference between a Board Policy and an Administrative Procedure?”.
Board policies have been developed to highlight and support the very important governance function of the Board. They contain statements of belief, expectations, and sometimes specific requirements. They are intended to be supplemented by Administrative Procedures; the procedures and practices established by the Superintendent to direct staff.
The development of the two separate and distinct documents is meant to reinforce the distinction between the Board's responsibility to govern and the Superintendent's executive or administrative duties.
