The District is pleased to announce that its new policy management system, BoardDocs, is now live and available for public use. The new system contains all active School District policies as well as polices under consideration.  "Active policies" refer to those that are currently in force, while "under consideration policies" refer to those up for a First or Second Reading, or those under review by the Policy Committee. The policies are searchable by key term(s) which should prove helpful in quickly finding the policy(ies) relative to the issue you are researching. You can access the new policy managment system/policy manual by clicking here. It is also accessed through the District Policies submenu under the About S.C.A. tab at the top of this page and through a link on the Board of Education page.
Besides increasing public access and awareness of existing and proposed policies, the use of BoardDocs supports the District's initative of moving toward a paperless environment. Instead of printing paper policy manuals and packets of draft policies to review, Board members and other Policy Committee members will now complete the review and revision of polices completely online using this management system. A similar transition is underway for managing board meeting agendas. The District is planning to run "paperless meetings" beginning in April 2017. More information about that initiative will be published when the online Board of Education meeting agenda system is ready for use.
