Board Policy Manual

The District's Policy Manual, developed with Erie 1 BOCES Policy Services, does not provide legal advice. Applying Board policies to specific situations may require consulting with school administrators/school attorney, or other professionals to address the particular circumstances.


         Here are the policy statements formulated by the Board of Education (Board) of the Town of Webb Union Free School District (District).


         Policy is defined as a basic plan of action. It establishes limits within which freedom of judgment can be exercised. Policy is also a governing principle of management. It is a statement that has an effect on the interests of those who come under its jurisdiction. A policy may originate from the constitution, from statute, from local determinations, or from customary patterns of formal behavior.

         Policy should accomplish the following:

a)      State a position taken by the District;

b)      Grant the authority to act;

c)      Be sufficiently detailed to give adequate direction;

d)      Be achievable within the real environment of the school and community;

e)      Provide for impartial procedures.

         In addition to the adopted policies, the operation of the District is governed by and subject to all applicable laws, regulations of the Commissioner of Education, Civil Service requirements, Board Resolutions, School Administrative Regulations and Contracts of Agreement.

         If any part of this manual is made invalid by judicial decision or legislative or administrative enactment, all other parts will remain in full effect unless and until they are amended or repealed by the Board of Education. The official record of the adoption, amendment, or repeal of the bylaws and policies of the Town of Webb Union Free School District will be the minutes of the Board's meetings.
