How To Read The Signs And Symbols
A variety of signs and symbols are used in concert with the numeric codification system. These are explained below:
- -R - This symbol following a policy code number indicates the statement is an administrative regulation rather than a board policy. These statements appear on yellow paper.
- -E - This symbol following a policy code number indicates the statement is an exhibit rather than a board policy. These statements appear on green paper.
- Legal Reference - This sign indicates the legal references. They tell the user where the user may find the statutes, case law, attorney general opinions, or administrative rules that give authority to a policy.
- Cross Reference - Many policies in the manual relate to other policies in the manual. Cross references are provided to assist the user in finding all of the related policies.
Inquires about the policies included in this manual may be directed to the board members or to the Superintendent by telephone at (515) 832-9200 or by writing the school district at 825 Beach Street, Webster City IA 50595.
