This system of organization was developed by the National School Board Association, U.S. and has been widely adopted in British Columbia. Some Policies, Regulations and Administrative Procedures relate to others. Cross references are given to help find all pertinent information on a given topic.
Board Approved Policies are the principles adopted by the Board to chart a course of action. They tell what is wanted, they may say why, and to what extent. Policies are broad enough to give room for administrative action; but are also narrow enough to give clear guidance.
Board Approved Regulations are detailed directions, usually developed by the administration, to put policy into practice. Regulations tell how, by whom and when things are to be done. When the Regulation requires Board action to be legal or enforceable, or if the topic is of special importance, the Board formally approves a Regulation.
Administrative Procedures are concerned with the mechanics or details of the Policy. The development is left to the administration. The Board does not specify their content, nor formally approve them as done with regulations.
