Stanly County Board Of Education Policy Manual OLD Policy Manual

Stanly County Board Of Education Policy Manual NEW Policy Manual

Effective March 5, 2019, the Stanly County Board of Education (“the board”) will begin the process of revising the Stanly County Board of Education Policy Manual using the Policies to Lead the Schools (“PLS”) manual published by the North Carolina School Boards Association (“NCSBA”). It is anticipated that this revision and conversion process will take approximately two years to complete.

Some of the policies in the PLS manual cross-reference policies located in other sections of the PLS manual. At times, a policy may reference another policy that has not yet been adopted by the board. Such references shall have no binding effect on the board until the board actually adopts the referenced policy. Existing board policies remain in effect until such time as each policy is superseded by the new PLS-based policy on the same topic or is repealed by the board.

In order to help school personnel, students, parents and guardians, and other community members locate specific board policies while the board is in the process of adopting policies based on the PLS manual, NCSBA will provide Stanly County Schools with a preliminary correlation table for the entire PLS manual, so that all interested parties may identify which policies in the current policy manual correspond with the policies that are being cross-referenced in newly adopted board policies.

Any school employee, student, parent or guardian, or other member of the community attempting to access a particular board policy should first review the board’s new policy manual for an applicable policy. If there is no newly adopted version of an applicable policy (“new policy”) in the board’s new policy manual, the previously adopted policy (“old policy”) shall apply; however, if there is or appears to be a discrepancy between any new policy and old policy, the new policy shall apply and supersede the old policy.
