Policy 1220 School Planning Councils AND new Policy 6100 School Plans

School Plans are not new to School District No. 27.  Policy regarding School Plans was tied to Policy 1220 School Planning Councils.  With updated School Act legislation that eliminated School Planning Councils, the Board of Education is deleting Policy 1220 School Planning Councils.  However, the requirement for School Plans is still a legislative requirement.  Therefore, a new policy has been developed.

Cyclic Policy Review

The Board of Education has proposed a four year cyclic review of its Policy Manual.  This will assist the Board in ensuring its policies are up to date and relevant.  The cycle will promote awareness amongst staff and stakeholders.

Initial input on these policies from stakeholders will assist District Staff in making recommendations to the Board as to whether the policy is relevant or is in need of revision or deletion.  If the Board recommends revision or deletion, the Board will begin the policy revision process under Policy 1120.4 Policy Development.

This process does not negate the Board’s authority to make or review specific policies at any time.
