Mountain Home School District encourages all patrons and employees to provide input to the District Policy Committee regarding District policies. Please contact one of the policy committee members if you have any questions or input on any policy.
Policy input must be accompanied by the Policy Input Form either via email, mail, or may be dropped off at the District Administrative Building; any unsigned input forms will be thrown away.
The Policy Committee meets the second Tuesday of every month starting in October, at 3:30 p.m., in the District Office Conference Room. The Policy Committee meetings are posted on the district calendar. Due to prior commitments or unforeseen circumstances, the Policy Committee meeting may be cancelled until the following week or following month.
Policies are reviewed on a 5-year cycle but may be reviewed outside of the cycle to revise. Policies usually have three readings by the Board of Trustees with the third reading being the final reading; some policies might only have one reading, depending on the circumstances.
Patrons and staff may give input on any policy during the three readings by the Board of Trustees. The Policy Committee may not have the opportunity to review all the policies, procedures, and non-policy procedures; those that are not reviewed will be placed in the next school year cycle.
- Non-policy Procedures are approved by either the District Administration or the Policy Committee and not by the Board.
- The policy review list is not in any particular order, it is just a list of the policies in cycle for the school year.
- The Policy Committee may not have the opportunity to review all the policies, but those policies that are not reviewed will be placed in the next school year cycle.
Please review the Policy Review webpage regularly, as the page is frequently updated, and additional policies may be added.
