Board Policies

A policy is defined as a basic plan of action.  It establishes limits within which freedom of judgement can be exercised.

Policy is a governing principle of management.  It is a statement that has an effect on the interests of those who come under its jurisdiction.  A policy may originate from the constitution, from statue, from local determinations and/or from customary patterns of formal behavior.

Policy should accomplish the following:

  1. State a position taken by the District;
  2. Grant the authority to act;
  3. Be sufficiently detailed to give adequate direction;
  4. Be achievable within the real environment of the school and community;
  5. Provide for impractical procedures.

In addition to the adopted policies, the operation of the School District is governed by and subjected to all applicable Laws, Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, Civil Service requirements, Board of Education Resolutions, School Administrative Regulations and Contracts of Agreement.

If any part of this manual is made invalid by judicial decision or legislative or administrative enactment, all other parts shall remain in full effect unless and until they are amended or repealed by the Board of Education.  The official record of the adoption, amendment, or repeal of the by-laws and policies of the union Springs Central School District shall be the minutes of the meetings of the Board of Education.
