One of the most important functions of a Board of Education is to make policies for the administration of the school district. Policies are implemented by district personnel and ensure the smooth operation of the district. Many policies are required by statute or are directly related to business, board, or administrative functions. Other policies directly affect students and their families, instructional programs, pupil health, management, and safety, and the legal rights and obligations of students and parents.
