Bylaws, Policies, and Regulations

The Board of Education, in consultation with senior staff, determine policies and regulations which govern the operations of the school district’s human and physical resources.

These policies are designed to ensure a high level of conduct and quality educational services that inspire student success and prepare our students for the future.

NOTE: We are currently reviewing our policies and there will be changes to numbering and policy order once the whole process is complete.

There are no policies out for Impact at this time.
