BB 9311 Board Policies

KPBSD Policy Manual

BB 9311

Bylaw of the Board

Policies are written statements adopted by the Board which communicate the guidelines and limits within which the Superintendent and staff may take discretionary action.

(cf.2210 - Administrative Action in Absence of Board Policy)

The adoption of policy shall conform with Board bylaws governing agenda, meetings, and voting. Only those written statements adopted and recorded in the minutes shall constitute official Board policy.

Prior to adoption, policies shall normally be given two readings by the Board. Substantive changes in policy will first be considered by the Board Policy Committee. At its second reading, the policy may be adopted by a majority vote of all members of the Board. The Board may require additional readings.

In addition to presenting drafts or suggestions for new policy and policy revisions when changes in law occur or when a specific need arises, the Superintendent shall maintain procedures for the continuous orderly review of existing policies at a time allocated for this purpose on the agenda of regular Board meetings. When policies are amended, the Superintendent shall review corresponding administrative regulations to ensure that they conform to the intent of the revised policy.

When drafting or revising Board policies which affect other governmental agencies or areas of common interest, the Superintendent shall seek input from these agencies and shall express the Board's desire to cooperate with them in addressing matters of mutual concern.
