The Durham Public Schools Board of Education is in the process of revising the Durham Public Schools Board of Education Policy Manual using the Policies to Lead the Schools (PLS) system published by the North Carolina School Boards Association.
Some of the policies in the PLS manual cross-reference policies located in other sections of the PLS manual. At times a policy may reference a policy that has not yet been adopted by the Durham Public Schools Board of Education. Such references shall have no binding effect on the Board until the Board actually adopts the referenced policy. Existing Durham Public Schools Board of Education policies remain in effect until such time as each policy is superseded by the new PLS-based policy on the same topic or is repealed by the Durham Public Schools Board of Education.
In order to help school personnel and community members locate specific school board policies while the board is in the process of adopting policies based on the PLS system, the North Carolina School Boards Association will provide Durham Public Schools with a preliminary correlation table for the entire PLS manual so that all interested parties may identify which policies in the current Durham Public Schools policy manual correspond with the policies that are being cross-referenced in newly adopted Durham Public Schools policies.
