The Board forms and adopts the policies of ESD 112. The Board receives input and assistance forming policies from the Superintendent, ESD staff, and if needed the counsel of local superintendents in ESD 112.
The Superintendent, or the Superintendent’s designee, develops procedures where required by Board Policy to implement the policy. Procedures are not reviewed by the Board.
Guidelines, Manuals and Operating Practices
Department and Program Managers develop guidelines, manuals and operating practices that address agency, department and program expectations. Guidelines, manuals and operating procedures are reviewed and approved by the ESD 112 Cabinet member that oversees the department or program.
If there is a conflict or ambiguity in policies, procedures or guideline/manual/operating practices, Board Policies govern. ESD procedures govern and must be followed when there is a conflict or ambiguity between a procedure and a department or program guideline, manual or operating procedure.
