1000 Series - Community Relations

This series deals with the school system's external relations - with mass media of communication, with PTAs, with citizen's committees, with complaints concerning school personnel, with community use of school buildings, with other governmental and private groups concerned with education, and the like.

2000 Series - Administration

This series deals with the administrative machinery at the executive level. Here is recorded the Board's action in activating all administrative and supervisory jobs to the extent that the Board has that function under the law. Job descriptions of those positions will also be found here, or a reference to where they may be found if their number justifies a separate manual.

In addition, you should find here an organization chart, a statement of the line of responsibility, evidence of problem solving and communications devices like councils, cabinets, and committees for executives - all supported by a clear statement of the philosophy of administration subscribed to by the Board and Superintendent.

The Board of Education needs some policies about its own operations. These will be different from the By-laws, which are, in effect, rules.

This series provides the Statements of Board Purpose, and provisions for matters such as induction of Board Members, in-service development of Board members, code of ethics for the Board as a group and individually, and the Board's attitude toward policy development.

9000 Series - By-laws of the Board
This Series includes arrangements for meeting procedures, duties of officers, quorum, terms of office members, etc., often specified in the law. These rules concern only the Board itself as an instrument.
