Policy Tool | District Policies




The Board considers policy development its chief function, along with providing the wherewithal, such as personnel, buildings, materials and equipment, for the successful administration, application and execution of its policies.

The Board accepts the definition of policy set forth by the National School Boards Association:

Policies are principles adopted by the School Board to chart a course of action. They tell what is wanted; they may include why and how much. Policies should be broad enough to indicate a line of action to be followed by the administration in meeting a number of problems; narrow enough to give clear guidance. Policies are guides for action by the administration which then sets the rules and regulations to provide specific directions to school district personnel.

The policies of the Board are framed, and are meant to be interpreted, in terms of Connecticut laws and rules and regulations of the State Board of Education and all other regulatory agencies.

The Board shall ensure that its policies are consistent with State and Federal laws and regulations.  The Board shall perform a full review of its policies no less than once every five (5) years.
