District Procedures

Administrative policies are generally approved by the board and impose legal requirements on the district. New policies and policy changes often go through a public reading and comment process before they are adopted.

Procedures, on the other hand, are established by the district administration. Procedures do not require board approval. Procedures that are likely to be controversial may go through a public comment process, although this is not required.

Administrative policies and procedures are related because the procedures outline how school district personnel will implement the policies. If an administrative policy changes, procedures may need to be changed as well.
