Among the significant roles of a school board is the development of clear policies to guide the operation of the School District. The Superintendent of Schools, to whom the School Board assigns responsibility for the implementation of its policies, develops administrative regulations. In the North Vancouver School District, administrative regulations are written to accompany policies.
The policy classification system in the North Vancouver School District is simple and expandable/retractable and intended to permit easy access by the public and employees. Each policy includes a rationale or reason for the policy, and each policy is accompanied by administrative procedures written to support the policy.
The classification system is divided into nine headings, which contain specific policies, numbered 101, 102, etc. namely:
100 Governance and Foundations200 Instructional Programs and Services300 Student Conduct and Welfare400 Parent and Community Relations500 Human Resources600 Organization and Management700 Financial Management800 Facilities and Equipment900 Board Bylaws
