One of the primary functions of the Board of Education is to formulate policies which serve as the rules to govern the schools in Barrow County.
The adoption of Board policies takes place at two regular or special meetings of the Board in the following sequence:
Announcement and distribution of proposed new or revised policies as an item of information.
Opportunity offered to concerned groups or individuals to react to policy proposals. When a policy is "Pending" a link may be found on the home page.
Discussion and final action by the Board on policy proposals.
The final vote to adopt or not to adopt is taken at the next scheduled Board meeting subsequent to the announcement and distribution of the proposed policy.
