Administrative Procedures

This Administrative Procedures Manual is designed to be the primary written source of administrative direction for the division. It is designed to be entirely consistent with the Board Policy Handbook and is an extension of policy in the form of procedures. This manual may make further reference to other detailed administrative documents that have been developed to provide specific guidelines on selected matters. It may also reference legislative provisions to which the Superintendent must adhere and, therefore, are not subject to change by the Superintendent.

There are five (5) categories in which administrative procedures are placed in the manual. The categories are:

  • 100 General Administration
  • 200 Instructional Programs and Materials
  • 300 Students
  • 400 Personnel and Employee Relations
  • 500 Business Administration
