b) Grant the authority to act

c) Be sufficiently detailed to give adequate direction

d) Be achievable within the real environment of the school and community

e) Provide for impartial procedures

In addition to the adopted policies, the operation of the School District is governed by and subject to all applicable Laws, Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, Civil Service requirements, Board of Education Resolutions, School Administrative Regulations and Contracts of Agreement.

If any part of this manual is made invalid by judicial decision or legislative or administrative enactment, all other parts shall remain in full effect unless and until they are amended or repealed by the Board of Education. The official record of the adoption, amendment, or repeal of the by-laws and policies of the Gananda Central School District shall be the minutes of the meetings of the Board of Education.
