District Policies

District policies are created by the Board of Education to provide guidance and direction on school matters. Many policies are required by law or developed as local policies by the Board. A Policy Review Committee reviews policies periodically to ensure they are current. The Board then adopts the final policies at official Board meetings.

Please contact Superintendent Dr. Thomas Reardon at 518-283-4600 ext. 14 with any questions.
