Policies

This section contains the official policies of the Acton-Boxborough Regional School Committee. Policy development in a modern, forward-looking school system 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. The district will make a diligent effort to keep this section of the website up to date as new policies, regulations, and exhibits are distributed by the central office. The school department operates according to policies established by the school committee. The committee then appraises the effects of its policies and makes revisions as necessary. In the interests of harmony, efficiency, uniformity of interpretation, coordination of effort, and in fairness to all concerned, the committee makes this manual available to all who are affected by its policies. Please Note: The information contained is the property of the Acton-Boxborough Regional School Committee.

Notice Regarding District Policies

The Acton-Boxborough Regional School District is being expanded to include the Acton Public Schools and Boxborough School District. For the period July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014, all references to the Acton-Boxborough Regional School District in the Districts' policies should be read to include the Acton Public Schools.

Policy Classification System

Policies are organized in accordance with the classification system developed by the National School Boards Association (NSBA). This system provides an efficient means of coding, filing, and finding policies and other documents. There are 12 major classifications, each assigned an alphabetical code. Each major section presents the policies pertaining to that topic. You can also look in the policy index, which cross-references key words to policy sections. Note: Similar to other districts, not every policy is posted. If you have questions concerning these polices, please contact the Superintendent's Office at 978.264.4700.
