Policies and Procedures

Open Policies and Procedures Handbook

Please Note:  Garrett County Public Schools is now leveraging the National School Board Association (NSBA) system for codifying school board policies and district regulations. We are currently in the process of revising our policy and procedures to reflect this. Please refer to this as necessary when a policy/procedure item is classified using the recently adopted NSBA system. 

The system is contained in 12 sections, or chapters, as follows:

 Foundations and Basic Commitments
 School Board Governance and Operations
 General School Administration
 Fiscal Management
 Support Services
 Facilities Planning and Development
 School-Community- Home Relations
 Education Agency Relations
