Policy BGD: Review of Administrative Regulations

Home 5 Policy BGD: Review of Administrative Regulations

It is expected that the Superintendent and administrative staff will need to issue regulations implementing policies of the School Committee.Many of these will be routine from year to year; others will arise in special circumstances; some will be drawn up under specific directions from the Committee.

The School Committee will be kept informed of new regulations and major changes in regulations.

Ordinarily, the School Committee will not vote on regulations developed by the Superintendent and administrative staff, except as required by state law or in cases when strong community attitudes, or possible student or staff reaction, make it necessary or advisable for a regulation to have the School Committee’s advance approval.

The School Committee may review the regulations developed for the school system by the Superintendent and administrative staff whenever they appear inconsistent with policy, goals, or objectives of the District, but the School Committee will revise or veto such regulations only when, in the Committee’s judgment, they are inconsistent with policies adopted by the Committee.

Rules Pertaining to Staff and Student Conduct:

Under Massachusetts law, the Superintendent is required to publish”rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct of teachers and students which have been adopted.” Codes of conduct will be included in staff and student handbooks.
