Formulation and Approval/Revision/Recision of Regulations

  1. Formulation

    The School Board shall delegate to the Superintendent the function of specifying required actions and designing the detailed arrangements under which the schools of this School Division shall be operated.

    Such rules and detailed arrangements shall constitute the regulations governing the schools. They must be in every respect consistent with the policies adopted by the School Board. Staff is responsible to the Superintendent for familiarizing themselves with and following School Division regulations.

    In the absence of applicable policy, the Superintendent is authorized to establish needed regulations subject to later confirmation in policy should the School Board so wish.

    The School Board itself shall formulate and approve or revise regulations only when specific state or federal mandates require School Board approval and may do so when the Superintendent so recommends in light of strong community attitudes or probable staff reaction.

  2. Review

    The School Board reserves the right to review and veto administrative regulations should they, in the School Board's judgment, be inconsistent with the policies adopted by the School Board.

  3. Distribution

    Regulations promulgated by the Superintendent shall be provided to the School Board in a timely manner. When the Superintendent promulgates new regulations or revises current regulations initial copies provided to the School Board for information shall show the previous language eliminated by strikeouts and new or revised language by double underlining in order that language eliminated and revised is clear.
