The policies of a school system state in general and specific terms the meaning of achieving the school educational program.

Policies are a compilation of history, tradition, custom, court decisions, law, and the philosophy of the School Board. They are intended to guide those concerned with the educational program. This includes the school board, the school administration, the teachers, and all the classified personnel.

School policies are a framework for decision-making. They should be broad enough to permit initiative and freedom of choice, but be specific enough to influence over-all directions of actions.

School policies are not static. In an ever-changing society, we must be aware of the need for change in our educational and social patterns.

To provide a better educational program for our students is the aim of all concerned with school policies.

The following pages state in writing the basic procedures to be used in developing the educational program of the Madison Central School District No. 39-2 of Madison, South Dakota.
