  • Divisional Policies, Procedural By-Laws, and Committees Terms of Reference

    The Louis Riel School Division follows the policy development codification and dissemination system of the National School Boards Association known as the National Education Policy Network (NEPN) system. 

    This system is contained in 12 sections, as follows:

    Section A: Foundations and Basic Commitments

    Section B: School Board Governance and Operations

    Section C: General School Administration

    Section D: Fiscal Management

    Section E: Support Services

    Section F: Facilities Planning and Development

    Section G: Personnel

    Section H: Negotiations

    Section I: Instruction

    Section J: Students

    Section K: School-Community-Home Relations

    Section L: Education Agency Relations

    Each section has its own family of subcategories - codes that are accompanied by descriptor terms that provide suggested titles for policy statements. The NEPN classification system provides a comprehensive list of policy codes, but its letter coding can be easily customized when a division needs more detailed codes in any specific area. Supported by The National School Board Association, a not-for-profit federation of state associations of school boards across the United States, the system is commonly utilized by school boards throughout Canada.
