DEVELOPMENT, REVIEW AND REVISION OF POLICY
Purpose: To provide guidelines for the development, review, and revision of policy.
Policy: The Board shall, at least once every five (5) years, review the policy statements in the Board Policy Manual. The following schedule will be used to review policies, beginning with the first year following a Department of Education site visit.
Year 1: 100s, 200s and 300s Series
Year 2: 400s Series
Year 3: 500s Series
Year 4: 600s, 700s, and 800s Series
Year 5: 900s and 1000s Series
Once the policy has been reviewed, even if no changes were made, a notation of the date of review shall be made in the Policy Manual.
The proposed or revised policy shall be placed on the agenda for consideration. Final action to adopt new or amended policies shall take place only after it has appeared as an agenda item at two Board meetings.
For a policy statement that remains unedited, a resolution to waive the second reading may be adopted.
