Through the authority granted by the Nevada State Legislature, the Washoe County School District's Board of Trustees establishes the direction and structure of the District through Board Policy. Policies establish direction for the District; set the goals, assign authority, and establish controls that make school governance and management possible. Policies are the means by which the Trustees and the District are accountable to the public.
Administrative Regulation are detailed directions developed by the Superintendent, and/or his/her designee, to put policy into practice. Administrative regulations tell how, by whom, where and when things things are to be done. They assign policy implementation details to staff, and provide detailed requirements, procedures and prohibitions under which the District will operate.
Administrative Procedure are broken into two categories - some serve in the same way as Administrative Regulations; others are Desktop Procedures which describe in detail each basic task and process needed to accomplish a specific job effectively and accurately. Desktop Procedures assure consistency of task performance and make employees accountable for reliable results.
