This site contains the official board policies for the board of directors of the Clarinda Community Schools. Policy development is a dynamic, ongoing process. New problems, issues, and needs give rise to the continuing need to develop new policies or to revise existing ones. 

How To Use This Policy Manual
The Clarinda Community School District operates according to policies established by its board of directors. The board develops policies after careful deliberation, and the school administration implements them through specific regulations and procedures. The board reviews and evaluates its policies and makes revisions as necessary.

The manual is organized according to a numeric codification system.  There are nine major classifications bearing a numeric Series Code.

        100    SCHOOL DISTRICT
        200    BOARD OF DIRECTORS
        300    ADMINISTRATION
        400    STAFF
        500    STUDENTS
        600    EDUCATION PROGRAM
        800    BUILDINGS AND SITES

Sub-classifications under each numeric Series are based on a logical sequence and coded by the sub-classification numeric code.
