Fall Policy Updates (September, October & November)

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 103 policies.

In September, October, and November, the following 23 policies were updated, most with minor changes:

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.”

We will continue to provide regular policy updates. In December, a NEW policy is being adopted as well as two amendments to instructional policies to address “sexually explicit materials” as outlined in Virginia Code.
