The Washington Parish School Board recognizes that the development of sound educational policies is a complex and continuous process.  The Board, Superintendent, and staff fully realize the need for continuous input from school district personnel, students and lay citizens.  It is the intent of the Board that policies under consideration be given wide exposure in order that the Board may receive suggestions from all segments of the district before final adoption.


Consequently, the preliminary development of policy statements shall be the responsibility of the Superintendent and his/her staff. Once the policy statements have been drafted they shall be presented to the Board for its consideration.  Proposed policies shall be developed based on pertinent research and input from personnel within the school system so as to assure that any policy statements adopted by the Board offer maximum effectiveness and consistency in their application.
