Proposals regarding school district policies and operations may originate at any of several sources: a parent, a student, a community resident, an employee, a member of the Board, the Superintendent, a consultant, a civic group.

A careful and orderly process will be used in examining such proposals prior to action upon them by the Board.

Final action on such proposals, whatever their source, will be by the Board in accord with its policy on policy adoption. The Board will take action on most matters on the basis of recommendations presented to the Board by the Superintendent. The Superintendent will base his or her recommendations on the outcomes of study and upon the judgment of the professional staff and study committees.

Notes: Any policy establishing a policy council or advisory committee is usually included under this category. Specific regulations pertaining to the functioning of such groups can be filed under code BFB-R.
