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:
