In Connecticut, public school districts use a universal framework to name, categorize, and organize their operating policies. In many cases, the basics tenets of these policies are created and issued by the State of Connecticut. In other cases, the policies are issued from the Federal level. Some policies may reflect a combination of state and/or federal requirements with additional requirements established by the Bethany Board of Education.
The official set of formal policies is managed by the Bethany Board of Education. Changes in policies can only be adopted, reviewed, and revised by majority vote of the Bethany Board of Education.
