The board has jurisdiction  to legislate  policy for the school district with the force and effect of law.  Board policy provides  the general  direction  as to what the board wishes to accomplish  while allowing  the superintendent  to implement  board policy.

The written policy statements  contained  in this manual  provide guidelines  and goals to the citizens, administration,  employees  and students  in the school district community.   The policy statements  shall be the basis for the formulation  of regulations  by the administration.   The board shall determine  the effectiveness  of the policy statements  by evaluating  periodic  reports  from the administration.

Policy statements  may be proposed  by a board member,  administrator,  employee,  student or member  of the school district community.   Proposed policy statements  or ideas shall be submitted  to the superintendent's   office for possible  placement  on the board agenda.   It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent  to bring these proposals  to the attention  of the board.
