CHCA - Approval of Handbooks and Directives
In order that pertinent Board policies, regulations, school rules and procedures may be known by all staff members, patrons, students and parents affected, district administrators and principals are granted authority to issue staff and student handbooks.
It is essential that the contents of all handbooks conform with district-wide policies and regulations. It is also important that all handbooks bearing the name of the district or one of its schools be of a quality that reflects favorably on the district. The Board, therefore, expects all handbooks to be approved by the Superintendent or designee before publication.
The Superintendent will use his/her judgment as to whether specific handbooks need Board approval. However, all handbooks published are to be made available to the Board for informational purposes.
