BISD Policies & Procedures
One of the school board’s major functions, and the foundation upon which the district’s “structure” is built, is the setting of policy. The board develops and adopts district policy governing all facets of school operations, including employment of staff, administration of student services, educational programs, instructional materials, school facilities, equipment, finance, and support services.
Policies are the legally binding and enforceable mechanism by which the board establishes the governance framework of the district. Policies, including edits or updates to existing policies, are adopted by the board.
Procedures guide implementation of policy, define standard operating procedure, and generally allow room for professional discretion and judgment, as appropriate. Procedures are not adopted by the board.
