The duties of the Board include developing specific policies with respect to the operation of our school system. Currently there are 107 such policies that have been adopted by the Board. These policies relate to a wide variety of matters, ranging from Gifts to School Personnel (Policy #1305) to School Bus Transportation (Policy #3800) to Bullying Behavior in the Schools (Policy #5162). If there is an important issue concerning our school system or our students, it is likely that there will be an existing Board policy associated with that issue. Parents and other interested persons are urged to review our Policies, which are updated periodically, in order to better understand the manner in which our District operates.
