Policies and Procedures
POLICY MANUAL INTRODUCTION
The Cedar Rapids Community School District’s Policy Manual contains the policies, regulations, and procedures of the District. On-going review of the manual occurs as new issues and needs arise that may give rise to developing new policies or to revising existing ones.
The Board of Directors of the District reviews and consider policies after careful deliberations. The District Administration implements the policies through specific regulations and procedures.
How to Use the Policy Manual
The Policy Manual is organized according to a numeric codification system. There are ten major classification bearing a numeric Series Code:
100 DISTRICT LEGAL STATUS AND COMMITMENT
200 BOARD GOVERNANCE AND OPERATIONS
700 FISCAL MANAGEMENT

900 SUPPORT SERVICES
1000 SCHOOL-COMMUNITY RELATIONS
Subclassifications under each numeric Series are based on a logical sequence and coded by the appropriate numeric code located in the upper right-hand corner of the document.
