8000 Series - Internal Board Policies
The Board of Education utilizes policies to guide its governance of the school district. These will be different from bylaws, which are, in effect, rules. What goes here are statements of Board purpose, and provisions for matters like induction of Board members, inservice development of Board members, code of ethics for the Board as a group and individually, and the Board's attitude toward policy development. The Board's intent makes a great deal of difference in what it ultimately does and how it does it.

As you expect, this series includes the familiar arrangements for meeting procedures, duties of officers, quorum, terms of office of members, and the like - often specified in the law. These rules, as was the case of the policies in the 8000 Series, concern only the Board itself as an instrument of democracy.
