The Board of Education recognizes the importance of parent/guardian, staff and student handbooks
that accurately convey the policies, procedures and rules of the district to the individuals affected by
them. The Board charges the administration with the responsibility for creating, revising,
maintaining and disseminating/making available such handbooks in accordance with Board policies
and administrative procedures.
The superintendent or designee is charged with responsibility for staff handbooks, and building
principals are charged with responsibility for parent/guardian and student handbooks. The
superintendent will approve all handbooks before publication, and all published handbooks will be
made available to the Board.
Administrators must ensure that handbooks do not conflict with the language or intent of policies,
regulations or procedures. In the event of a discrepancy between handbooks and other written
district materials, Board policies and administrative procedures will take precedence. All handbooks
shall be reviewed annually and revised if necessary. Each handbook will be posted on the district's
website in accordance with law.
