Revised But Not Yet Implemented
- Policy 3050 - Records Management
The Howard County Board of Education adopted the new policy and its implementation procedures on October 4, 2011. This policy establishes the management of HCPSS records and states HCPSS is responsible for maintaining records retention and disposition schedules for various types of documents. Implementation of this policy will be forthcoming.
As policies are developed or revised, the public is urged to provide input. Policies under review are available at the Board of Education Web Site (BoardDocs) along with their current status. The timeline for public hearings and adoption is included with each draft policy. Comments may be submitted via email by using the Comment link.
The public is invited to testify at the public hearings, or to write or phone Board members once the draft policy is published.
