Making and maintaining policy is one of a school board's major responsibilities. Policies provide guidance to district staff personnel, students, parents, and patrons while setting a professional tone for the Russellville School District. In addition, policies serve to communicate and orient new board members and Russellville citizens regarding procedures for this district.
The Board of Education Policy Manual is the only official source for Russellville School District policies. The manual is maintained in the Superintendent’s Office, and a copy is available for all school personnel as well as online. Each policy is categorized according to the Arkansas School Board Association (ASBA) Model Policy.
