Policy BFC

Lynchburg City School Board is a member of Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Policy Services. As a member, the Board receives new and revised policies from VSBA based on legal research and analysis. It is the policy of Lynchburg City School Board that upon receipt by the division’s Policy Contact person of new and revised policies developed by the VSBA legal and policy staff, such policies shall be the policy of the Lynchburg City school division.

Upon receipt of new and revised VSBA-developed policies, the division Policy Contact person shall immediately incorporate the new and revised policies into the division’s policy manual (both electronic and hard copy versions) and ensure that all copies of the policy manual are current.

This policy does not replace the local review of new and revised policies. New and revised policies received from VSBA still will be provided to an editorial committee of staff and community members for review for the purpose of recommending editorial suggestions to the Board and Superintendent.

The purpose of this policy is to eliminate lag time between receipt of a new or revised policy and its implementation.
