Suspension of Polices, Bylaws, Administrative Regulations
SUSPENSION OF POLICIES, BYLAWS, ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS
Note: Policies require frequent updating. The School Board should not be forced into a position of strict adherence to policies that need revision or are out of compliance. By allowing the suspension of policy on the rare occasions when necessary, this optional policy ensures that the Board's capacity to govern will not be limited by out-of-date policies. The suspension is a temporary measure to give the Board adequate time to study the issues resulting in the suspension.
Policies, bylaws and administrative regulations may be suspended for a specific purpose and limited time by majority vote. Suspension of any policy, bylaw or administrative regulation shall undergo the following consideration:
- Policies, bylaws or administrative regulations shall be reviewed on their own merits rather than the circumstances of the moment.
- The School Board shall decide whether the policy, bylaw or administrative regulation still reflects the intent of the Board and the law. If so, the suspension will be denied and the policy, bylaw or administrative regulation reaffirmed in the minutes.
Superintendent or Designee's Authority
The Superintendent or designee may suspend all or part of any policy, bylaw or administrative regulation when it conflicts with state or federal law or regulations. The Superintendent or designee shall report the suspension to the Board. Suspension shall be valid until the policy, bylaw or administrative regulation is rescinded, amended or reaffirmed.
