Through its governance powers, the School Board has adopted an extensive list of Board Policies to ensure there is a safe learning environment for all students and a safe working environment for all staff. One of the ongoing responsibilities of the School Board is to ensure its policies are current, practical, useful, readily available, clear, and comply with applicable laws due to changes in legislation, administrative rules, or District changes in practices.

School Board Policy Revision Process

In accordance with Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, titled Administrative Procedure Act, the School Board has adopted Policy BG School Board Policies and Policy Process which explains the rulemaking process in creating, revising, and repealing of policies. The public is invited to provide public comment at Rule Development Workshops and at the School Board meeting at which the policies are being considered. To learn more about how you can provide public comment, visit the Meetings, Agendas & Minutes page and click on “Who Can Speak?” and “Speaker Guidelines.”

The following policy/policies are currently pending in the rulemaking process and will be advertised in the Orlando Sentinel with a run date of

The following policies are currently being considered for technical corrections.
