Background: The proposed revisions are part of the Board’s ongoing work to provide ACPS with high-quality governance. ACPS has over 400 policies and regulations and has established the target of reviewing at least 100 policies and regulations each school year. Candidate policies for revision are drawn from code changes, changes in the VSBA model policies, the code requirement that policies are reviewed every 5 years, and policies and regulations that have been identified by the Board and/or staff for review. Drafts of proposed revisions are available for public review as part of the Policy Subcommittee, Board Information, and Board Action processes.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board approve the proposed policy revisions.
