The Board believes that policies provide guidance and direction for the overall operation of the District. The Board, functioning within the framework of state and federal laws, fulfills its responsibility as the governing body of the District by formulating and adopting policies.

The Board will adopt policies to guide the actions of those to whom it delegates authority. These policies will be recorded in writing and organized according to the WASB classification system.

In formulating policies, the Board will adopt general principles and statements of intent. The District Administrator will, when necessary or when directed by the Board, prepare written regulations or administrative rules to ensure the implementation of Board policy.

Policies and/or revisions may be proposed by any member of the Board, by any lay group or organization, or by any citizen of the district. The District Administrator, in cooperation with the staff and the Board, may recommend policies for adoption and recommend revision of existing policies.

Recommended policies will not be formally acted on by the Board until the regular monthly meeting following the first formal presentation of such policy to allow time for review and possible change.

The recommended policy will become official at the close of the regular monthly meeting in which the policy has been read the second time and has been approved and filed with the Clerk.
