Policy Management Committee

Description Members

The Policy Subcommittee was created on November 13, 2001. It consists of four Board members. When the need for a new or revised policy is recognized, the subcommittee meets with appropriate staff to develop a draft policy. The committee then presents the proposed policy item to the Board for discussion and tentative action.

Policy is defined as principles adopted by resolution of the Board of Education to guide the development and implementation of educational programs and/or for management of the school system.

Established by Resolution 615-01 Minutes

WHEREAS, On July 2, 2001, the Board of Education took tentative action to adopt a draft Policy BFA, Policysetting, and request that it be sent out for public comment; and
