MPS Policy Manual

About the Manual:

This manual contains the official policies of the Marblehead School Committee; the major regulations intended to implement policy; and certain reference or “exhibit” documents that relate to policies and/or regulations. Policy development in a modern, forward-looking school system is a dynamic, ongoing process. New problems, issues, and needs give rise to the continuing need to develop new policies or to revise existing ones. The Marblehead School Committee approved this updated policy manual on October 18, 2018.
