:: Policy Development and Review
Policy Review Listings
- Policy development and review is guided by Board Policy CH.BP - Policy Development and Review.
- All existing policies and regulations are reviewed approximately every seven years or as required.
- Edmonton Public Schools will post proposed new policies (or changes to existing policies) on this website and invites input on the effects of changes.
A listing of policy reviews open for stakeholder input is posted to this website. Each policy under review has an online stakeholder feedback form for anyone wishing to provide input on that policy. Depending on the nature of the policy revision or issues surrounding a policy, the stakeholder feedback form may be open-ended or consist of a series of questions. In addition, some policies will have targeted stakeholder consultation meetings to seek input. Submissions will not receive a response, however the input we receive will be analyzed and considered during policy review and development.
The Administration will draft a recommended policy for Board consideration based on analysis of research and related legislation as well as consideration of stakeholder input received. All policies submitted to board for approval will have three readings. Normally, no more than two readings will be given at any one board meeting. A listing of board policies scheduled for Board approval may be accessed for review.
When the Board of Trustees gives final approval to a new policy or a revision to an existing policy, the policy is updated to the Board Policies and Regulations and will be posted on our website under New Policies and Regulations.
