Policies and Procedures
Board of Education of Harford County

The Board Policy Manual for the Board of Education of Harford County sets forth the existing policies for the school system.

In Spring 2002, the Board of Education established procedures for development and review of its policies. Included in these procedures was direction to the Superintendent to make the policies available to the public in an electronic format. Accordingly, upon approval of the Board of Education, each policy section was placed in this web site.

In 2006, the Board took action to reorganize the policies in a format that is more web friendly for improved readability. The Policies are now codified in these policy manual sections: Students, Instruction, School Management, Safety and Security, Stakeholders, Ethics, Personnel, Fiscal, Contracting and Procurement, District Management, School System Governance, and Equity and Non-Discrimination.

It is the Board of Education's intent to make its policies more accessible through these actions. Should you require information regarding a particular policy, you may contact the Manager of Communications at 410-588-5203 or direct your inquiry to that office in writing to the following address:
