Administrative Rules

The role of the Board of Trustees is to establish policies, while the role of the Administration is to implement those policies through administrative rules. Policies are principles adopted by the board to chart a course of action. Administrative Rules are detailed directions developed by the administration to put policy into practice. A policy may provide sufficient direction by itself and it may not be accompanied by an administrative rule. Every administrative rule is written to implement a policy adopted by the Board.

Manual Updates

This manual is updated as policies and procedures are adopted, amended, repealed or otherwise revised. Policies of Mountainville Academy are created by action of the board and become effective upon adoption, unless otherwise specified. Although Mountainville Academy strives to provide reliable and up-to-date content for policies on the website, delays may occur before newly adopted policies or amendments appear online. Therefore, at any time it is possible that the manual may be incomplete to the extent that recently adopted policies may not have yet been added in policy manual form. The school makes no warranty that the information contained herein is complete or error-free.

Inquiries regarding policies and procedures should be directed to the school office.
