MPS Rules and Policies Manual

Governance Policies of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors


The Governance Policies of the Milwaukee Board of School Directors establish overall direction for the Milwaukee Public Schools. Specifically, these policies address the Board's goals, governance process, relationships with the Superintendent and with the Director of Board Governance, and the constraints placed upon the Administration in executing Board policy. So long as the Administration operates within the general guidelines of the governance policies adopted by the Board, it may implement administrative regulations without the Board's approval, unless the Board has specifically directed that a particular regulation be given prior Board approval before implementation. Only the Board, however, may adopt new policies or revise existing policies.

The Board Governance Policies are organized under four major sections, each identified by a numeric code:

Each policy within a section is further catalogued alphanumerically to give each policy its own unique identification. For example click on a title to go to that section):

	Chapter 1.00 — School District Vision, Mission, & Goals
	Policy BG 1.01 — Mission Statement
	Policy BG 1.02 — School District Goals

The purpose of the alpha prefix is to identify the policy as a Board governance policy and not an administrative policy.
