Section 3.    Limitations Of Policy/Local Board Procedure
Board policies and procedures are not intended and shall not be construed to
supersede or preempt any applicable law, whether constitutional, statutory,
regulatory, or common law. Consequently, all Board policies and procedures shall
be given both an interpretation and application that is lawful. The Board shall
determine the final interpretation of its policies and procedures.
As the Board policies and procedures are limited by legal constraints, so too are the
rights of those to whom the Board policies and procedures apply. Board policies and
procedures are not intended to expand the rights of individuals beyond those
established by law or to give to any individual a cause of action not independently
established in law. Enforcement of Board policy and procedure rests exclusively
with the School Board.
Board policy and procedure shall not preempt, create, supplant, expand or restrict the
rights or liabilities of students, employees, or other members of the school district
community beyond what is contemplated by law and are not intended to restrict or
limit students, employees, or others from pursuing any claims or defenses available
under law.
Section 4.    Administrative Regulations
The Board shall delegate to the administration, under the direction of the
Superintendent, the function of specifying required actions and designing the
detailed arrangements under which the schools of the district will be operated. These
rules and detailed arrangements shall constitute the administrative regulations
governing the schools of the district. Administrative regulations shall not conflict
with Board policy.
Administrative regulations are not intended and shall not be construed to supersede
or preempt any applicable law, whether constitutional, statutory, regulatory, or
common law. Consequently, all administrative regulations shall be given both an
interpretation and application that is lawful. The administration shall determine the
final interpretation of administrative regulations.
As the administrative regulations are limited by legal constraints, so too are the
rights of those to whom the administrative regulations apply. Administrative
regulations are not intended to expand the rights of individuals beyond those
established by law or to give to any individual a cause of action not independently
established in law. Enforcement of administrative regulations rests exclusively with
the administration.
