All current NLPS Board policies are accessible below.
Board policies are reviewed on a regular basis. When changes are made and have been reviewed by the Board, policies are circulated to stakeholders for feedback. That feedback is then reviewed and considered by the Board before final approval is given to the policy. Starting in 2021, all policies that are currently available for feedback will be shared on our Engage NLPS site.
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.
