An item that may be of particular interest to parents, is any public input required after changes have been made to a draft policy. Regulation #9 states that if changes have been made to the policy, as the result of the review, further input may be sought by the board. There is no requirement to seek further input, even if the changes are major changes.
Please note that although school district policy documents appear to be board policies throughout the entire document, the only section under the control of the board, and that would go out for public input, would be the Regulations section. Administrative procedures are put with the policies for ease of use, but are the jurisdiction of the Superintendent, and can be changed without public input.
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS September 27, 2013
