Policy BFCZ

Policy

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.

Rationale

Upon receipt of new and revised VSBA-developed policies, the division Policy Contact person shall immediately forward the new and revised policies (both electronic and hard copy versions) to the appropriate policy workgroup for review and recommendations for adoption.

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.
