How to Use the Manual
In accordance with SCPS Policy 1105, our new manual reflects a new codification system and reflects nine major classifications:
1000 District Organization, Philosophy, and Goals
2000 Student Services
3000 Teaching and Learning
4000 Human Resources Services
5000 Financial Management
6000 Information System Services
7000 Support Services
8000 Facilities Services
9000 Business, Governmental, and Community Relations
Subclassifications are based on logical sequence and numerical subcoding. An example for Classification 1000 is as follows:
1100 School Board
1200 Superintendent of Schools
1300 Legal Counsel and Legal Services
1400 Division Organization
1500 School Calendar
1600 Triennial Census
1700 Division Planning
The numerical subcodings are in lots of 100, and the same sequence follows within each major classification listed above. The title “RESERVED” is used for those subclassifications with no policies or regulations.
Persons without access to the internet may request a hard copy of any policy or regulation by contacting a school principal or site administrator, or by contacting the Clerk of the School Board at the Alvin York Bandy Administrative Complex at 31 Stafford Avenue, Stafford, Virginia, or by telephone at (540) 658-6530. Citizens may request a hard copy of the complete manual upon special request and approved by the Superintendent. A fee may be charged for this service.
Understanding the Symbols
-R: This symbol indicates that the statement is a regulation rather than a policy.
-E: This symbol indicates that the statement is an exhibit associated with the policy and/or regulation.
Adopted: The date of adoption/approval appears immediately following each policy/regulation number and title. It is also shown at the end of each written policy and or regulation.
