1313 Approval of Handbooks

  • In order that pertinent board policies and important regulations and procedures may be known by all staff members and students affected by them, administrators are granted authority to issue staff and student handbooks as found necessary and desirable.

    It is essential that the contents of all handbooks conform with school board policies and the Student/Parent Responsibilities and Regulations, a publication approved annually by the board and distributed at the beginning of each school year to all students.  It is also important that all handbooks bearing the name of a school be of a quality that reflects credit on the school district.

    Approval may be necessary for any handbooks which pertain to required standards of conduct for employees or students so that their contents may be accorded the status of board-approved policy or regulation.  The superintendent will use their judgment regarding board approval of other specific handbooks.  All handbooks published will be made available to the board for informational purposes.
