Policies vs. Regulations


    Policies are...

    Principles adopted by a Board to chart a course of action. A policy tells what is wanted and perhaps also why and how much. It is also broad enough to indicate a line of action to be taken by the administration in meeting a number of day-after-day problems but narrow enough to give administration clear guidance.


    Regulations are...

    The detailed directions developed by SCPS administration to put the Board's policies into practice. A regulation will tell how, by whom, where, and when things are to be done.
