PREFACE

            The board considers policy development as one of its chief functions and it is the intent of the board to develop written policies for the successful and efficient functioning of the Spaulding High School Union District #41. The board further recognizes the need for continual growth and improvement of policies. It therefore will establish a schedule for review of policies every three to five years. That schedule can be found at the bottom of this page, beginning March 1, 2016.

            The board accepts the definition of policy as set forth by the National School Boards Association:

            Policies are principles adopted by the school board to chart a course of action.    They tell what is wanted; they may include why and how much. Policies should       be broad enough to indicate a line of action to be followed by the administration      in meeting a number of problems; narrow enough to give clear guidance. Policies          are guides for action by the administration, who then sets the rules and     regulations to provide specific directions to school district personnel.

            It is the board's intention that its policies serve as sources of information and guidance for all people who are interested in or connected with the Spaulding High School Union District #41.

            The policies of the board are framed, and are meant to be interpreted, in terms of Vermont laws, rules, and regulations. They are further framed and interpreted in terms of those educational objectives, procedures, and practices which are broadly accepted by authorities in the public education field.
