Adoption of new policies or changing existing policies is solely the responsibility of the Board. Policies will be adopted and/or amended only by the affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Board when such action has been scheduled on the agenda of a regular or special meeting.

To permit time for study of all new policies or amendments to policies and to provide an opportunity for others to react, proposed policies or amendments will be presented as an agenda item.

The new or amended policy shall either be posted on the governing body’s website or made available at the official business office of the governing body at least twenty-four hours prior to the meeting or at the time the material is distributed to the governing body, whichever is later. If the new or amended policy is not posted to the governing body’s website, at least one copy of the printed material shall be available in the meeting room for inspection by any person while the governing body is considering the new or amended policy.

The Board may approve the new or amended policy, amend and approve the proposed new policy or policy amendment, reject the new or amended policy, or defer action on the new or amended policy until a later date.

Policies will be effective upon adoption by the Board. Once adopted, policies of the Board shall be placed on the school district website.
