Policies and Regulations

Policies

MPS policies are the laws that govern the school district. They are approved by the School Board in consultation with the Superintendent and the Board's Policy Committee, in accordance with Policy 8520: Policy Development
 

Regulations

The Superintendent of Schools is charged with administering MPS policies. Regulations are the administrative procedures, processes, or rules that explain how the policy will be implemented or followed. Not all policies have regulations, but those that do will be identified with a corresponding letter after the policy number.

Policies and regulations are organized by chapters. Some chapters may have sub-chapters.
