BG - School Board Policy

The School Board considers policy development to be its chief function.  It is the intent of the School Board to develop written policies to serve as the framework for the successful and efficient functioning of the school unit.
School Board policies are statements that set forth the purposes and prescribe in general terms the organization and program of a school system. They create a framework within which the Superintendent and the staff can discharge their assigned duties with positive direction. They tell what is wanted. They may also indicate why and how much. Policies should define clearly the goals and objectives of the school system, allow for the flexibility that is vital in day-to-day operations, reflect the Board’s vision, define roles and responsibilities (who is supposed to do what), and include measurable outcomes.
The policies and procedures of the Falmouth Public Schools shall be interpreted in terms of applicable laws/regulations, rules of the State Board of Education and Department of Education, and other agencies of local, state and federal government.
All administrative procedures must be implemented in a manner consistent with school board policy.

The School Board will develop, adopt, revise, and delete policies in accordance with the accompanying procedure, BG-R.
