Gibbon Public Schools – Policy Manual

 

INTRODUCTION [toc]

 

This policy manual contains the policies of the board of directors of the Gibbon Public Schools District. Policy development is a dynamic, on-going process. New problems, issues, and needs give rise to the continuing need to develop new policies or to revise existing ones.

 

Each person holding a copy of this manual has a duty to keep the manual current as new and revised policies are distributed by the central administration office.

 

How To Use This Policy Manual

 

The school district operates according to policies established by its school board. The board develops policies after careful deliberation, and the school administration implements them through specific regulations and procedures. The board reviews and evaluates its policies and makes revisions as necessary.

 

The manual is organized according to a numeric codification system. There are ten major classifications bearing a numeric Section Code.

 

Sub-classifications under each numeric section are based on a logical sequence and coded by the sub-classification numeric code.

 

The index pages that follow each tab present the policies included in the section. These index pages serve as a table of contents for each section.

 

How To Find A Policy

 

There are two ways to find a policy. The first is to review the ten sections and determine which section the policy may be in. By turning to that section, you can review the table of contents to determine whether the policy is included. If the policy is included, you can turn to the policy by finding the correct code number in the upper right hand corner of the policy.

 

The second way to find a poicy is to look up the policy in the alphabetical index found under the tab entitled “Index” at the end of the manual. It will direct you to the section and the policy code number. Again, you can turn to the policy by finding the correct code number in the upper right hand corner of the policy.

 

How To Read The Signs and Symbols

 

A variety of signs and symbols are used in concert with the numeric codification system. These are explained below:

 

File symbol indicates this is an actual poilcy adopted directly by the board for the governance of the district.

 

Legal Reference: This sign indicates the legal references. They tell the user where to find the statutes, case law, attorney general opinions, or administrative rules that give authority to a policy.

 

Cross Reference: Many policies in the manual relate to other policies in the Reference manual. Cross references are provided to assist the user in finding all of the related policies.

 

Inquiries about the policies included in this manual may be directed to the board members or to the superintendent by telephone at (308) 468-6555 or by writing the school district at Superintendent, P.O. Box 790, Gibbon, NE 68840.
