The Board considers policy development one of its chief responsibilities. The Board strives to reflect the community’s values in its policies and commits itself to an ongoing effort to engage the community regarding policy-level concerns. The Board develops policies and puts them in writing to provide for the successful, consistent and efficient operation of the school and the high achievement of its students. Policy development shall be aimed primarily toward the continual formation and evaluation of goals and desired end results for students, rather than toward daily school operations.
Adoption of new policies or the revision or repeal of existing policies is solely the responsibility of the Board of Trustees. However, proposals regarding policies may originate with a member of the Board, the superintendent, staff members, parents, students, consultants, civic groups or other members of the school’s community. A careful and orderly process shall be used in examining such proposals prior to action upon them by the Board.
