Recognizing that formal guidelines are necessary to ensure that the school system responds to its stated mission and operates in an effective, efficient and consistent manner, a set of written policy statements shall be formulated and maintained. The Candia School Board considers policy development its chief function, along with appraisal of the results achieved through its policies. It is through the development and adoption of written policies that the Board will exercise its leadership in the operation of the school district; it is through study and evaluation of reports concerning execution of its written policies that the Board will exercise its control over school operations. In the formulation of its written policies, the Board in its discretion may request opinions of citizens, students, and staff members.

Changes in needs, conditions, purposes, and objectives will require revisions, deletions, and additions to the policies of present and future Boards. Thus, policy development is an ongoing process.

Policies shall be in the form of Board principles that define the desire and intent of the Board, consistent with educational needs of the community. They should indicate what is wanted and in a form which is concise but sufficiently explicit to guide administrative actions.

Execution of adopted policies is delegated to the Superintendent, who shall implement the policies through the development of administrative regulations and procedures.
