Board of Education Policies

  • The policies contained in the manual are the result of a combined effort of the Board of Education, district staff, and Kansas Association of School Boards. View our policy notifications regarding discrimination, harassment, and other topics. 

    Policies are principles adopted by the school board to provide the administration with clear guidance and direction for the daily operation of the school district. The manual is currently divided into twelve sections of policies. These sections are:

    A -- SCHOOL DISTRICT ORGANIZATION
    B -- SCHOOL BOARD OPERATIONS
    C -- GENERAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
    D -- FISCAL MANAGEMENT
    E -- BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
    G -- PERSONNEL (certified and non-certified)
    H -- NEGOTIATIONS
    I -- INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM
    J -- STUDENTS
    K -- GENERAL PUBLIC RELATIONS
    L -- INTERORGANIZATIONAL RELATIONS
    M -- RELATIONS WITH OTHER EDUCATION AGENCIES

    The manual was created to aide the user in quickly locating all policies related to a particular topic. The reader is encouraged to check any cross-referenced policies. These policies do not contain State and Federal statutory language, except where necessary, or negotiated contract language.

    Definitions

    1. When the masculine pronoun is used throughout these policies, it is intended to refer to both feminine and masculine antecedents.
    2. Wherever the word "superintendent" or "principal" occurs, the words "or designated representative" are assumed to be included.
