Lifecycle of an Administrative Regulation
The Board and/or Superintendent identifies a need for an administrative regulation, then the Superintendent selects a district administrator to be the “owner” of the administrative regulation. The administrative regulation then goes through the following life cycle.
- The owner of the administrative regulation develops a first draft and circulates it to Cabinet members for feedback.
- The owner of the administrative regulation incorporates the feedback from step 1 into a second draft and circulates it to Administrative Council members (which includes all principals and Cabinet members).
- The owner of the administrative regulation incorporates the feedback from step 2 into a third draft and shares it publicly on the district website, while notifying the public via eBlasts and websites that the AR is available for public input.
- The owner of the administrative regulation incorporates the feedback from step 3 into a final draft and brings it to Cabinet for a vote.
- If the administrative regulation passes, the final version is posted to the district website.
- At an appropriate time in the future, often between 1 and 3 years, the owner of the administrative regulation begins the process again by initiating a review of the existing administrative regulation.
Depending on the content of the specific administrative regulation, legal review may be incorporated into the process.
