The policy committee works on review and development of policies on behalf of the board of education. When policies are developed or reviewed the board committee must determine:
- if the policies are aligned with the district’s mission and priorities;
- if the policies are current and in alignment with state and federal law;
- if the policies are clearly written and understandable; and
- if procedures for implementation have been developed when necessary.
District policies can be viewed here. In addition, many policies or summaries of policies are provided in student/parent handbooks, the district calendar and/or in the 199 Reporter as required by statute or best practices.
The committee works closely with district administrators to make sure the policies approved by the school board are not only what is best for the district, but are truly executable by staff. The district currently has approximately 150 policies in place to govern our district; the goal is to review all policies every three years. In addition, changes in state statutes often require policy changes to reflect new laws, and sometimes require the district to create new policies. The committee generally meets twice a month.
The care, management, and control of Independent School District 199 schools are the result of policies established by the local Board of Education. These policies are implemented by the superintendent and her staff.
