    POLICY MANUAL

    This  online policy manual contains the policies of the board of directors of the North Polk Community School District. Policy development is a dynamic, ongoing process. New problems, issues, and needs give rise to the continuing need to develop new policies or to revise existing ones. 

    How To Use This Policy Manual

    The North Polk Community School District operates according to policies established by its board of directors. The board develops policies after careful deliberation, and the school administration implements them through specific regulations and procedures. The board reviews and evaluates its policies and makes revisions as necessary.

    This online manual is organized according to a numeric codification system. There are nine major classifications bearing a numeric Series Code.  Click on the Code Number to view the policies associated with the Series.

    Sub classifications under each numeric series are based on a logical sequence and coded by the sub classification numeric code.

    How To Read The Signs And Symbols

    A variety of signs and symbols are used in concert with the numeric codification system. These are explained below:

    • R: This symbol following a policy code number indicates the statement is an administrative regulation rather than a board policy.
    • E: This symbol following a policy code number indicates the statement is an exhibit rather than a board policy.
    • Legal Reference: This sign indicates the legal references. They tell the user where the user may find the statutes, case law, attorney general opinions, or administrative rules that give authority to a policy.
    • Cross Reference: Many policies in the manual relate to other policies in the manual. Cross References are provided to assist the user in finding all of the related policies.
