NHCS Board of Education Policy Manual

Introduction

This policy manual includes policies that represent the official position of the New Hanover County Board of Education and how the school system will be governed. The policies apply to all individuals, groups, and organizations under the jurisdiction of the New Hanover County Board of Education.

This manual contains all policies adopted by the New Hanover County Board of Education. The adoption date and legal references (when appropriate) are recorded on each policy. As the revisions are adopted, the last date of the revision is recorded.  Policies included herein supersede any previously adopted policies and should not be seen as cast in concrete but as yielding to changing conditions and requirements of the overall school system. Therefore, policies will be reviewed periodically and revised when necessary.

The development and revision of all policies shall be coordinated by appropriate central office staff under the direction of the Superintendent or designee. Proposed new and proposed revised policies shall be considered by the Policy Committee of the Board prior to being considered by the full Board.  Editorial changes that do not affect the meaning, substance or application of a policy may be made by the Board without advance public notice and comment. The adoption date and legal references (when appropriate) are recorded on each policy. As the revisions are adopted and reviewed, the last date of the revision or review shall be noted.
