School Board

board recognition

The McDade ISD board policy manual is organized by topic with relevant policy codes in each section. The policies fall into two categories:

  • Legal Framework: Provides relevant legal context for local decisions.

  • Local Policy: Board-adopted local policies intended to meet legal requirements and reflect local practices, priorities, and values.

When a legal framework and local policy appear at the same code, they should be read together. Additional resources, like regulations or exhibits, may be available or linked at certain codes.

Questions or concerns regarding board policy should be directed to the district's administration.
