Summer Policy Updates (June, July & August)

Policy Updates

Albemarle County Public Schools has a number of policies that govern our operations in alignment with state code and our division vision, mission and values. Our policies must be reviewed once every five years, though we often review them more frequently due to changes in Virginia Code or the needs of our school system. As part of the review process, we use our Equity Checklist to ensure that our policies are having a positive impact on equity in the school division. So far in 2022, we have updated, revised or deleted 80 policies.

Staff who are interested in reviewing the edits to each policy can access the documents as they were presented to the school board (with “track changes” shown) in ElectronicSchoolBoard (ESB). Within each meeting agenda, under the “Approval of Consent Agenda” heading, click on the items titled “For Information: Policy Review and Revision” or “For Action: Policy Review and Revision.”

In June, July and August, 27 policies were updated, including Policy GA, Employee Relations Principles Between the School Board and Its Employees, which was readopted in June after being deleted in April. Continue reading
