School Board Policies
A school district’s policies are its voice. As an advocate for School Board leadership, MSBA enhances the power of your school district’s voice through assistance in developing clear and sound written School Board policies.
MSBA’s policy materials are organized into a two-volume set:
The first volume contains Board policies and regulations, that require adoption for legal compliance and accreditation standards. As the chief policymaking body of the district, the Board should regularly adopt updates to this volume.
The second volume contains administrative procedures and administrative forms, that are intended to be routinely developed and monitored by the district’s administrators to implement Board policies. Even though this volume is to be used exclusively by the administration and, as such, does not require Board action, the procedures and forms must always be tailored for consistency with adopted policy.
