Board of Education Approves Policies and Sends Others Out for Public Input

June 27, 2024 – The Guilford County Board of Education’s Policy Committee reported that the following policy revisions and proposals are available for public input.  

 

A new policy, Policy 6401/8440/9100 Procurement Ethics, is now required by state law. The recommended draft is based on a model from the North Carolina School Boards Association.

 

The proposed revision to Policy 8210 Grants and Funding for Special Projects would consolidate policy information about seeking and receiving grants and large donations to the district. Due to the content of this proposed revision, Policy 8220 Contributions and Purchases by Outside Agencies for School Use and Policy 9002 Contributions for Capital Projects are recommended for repeal.

 

Policy 8300 Fiscal Management Standards has been revised to describe GCS standard accounting procedures, internal controls, and the cash management plan. The revised policy reflects the district's compliance with government accounting standards. The title has been changed to reflect its content better. This revision replaces Policy 8410 Cash Management, which is recommended for repeal.

 

The public can provide input on the policy proposals for 30 days by emailing boardclerk@gcsnc.com. The Board will consider the proposals at its August meeting.

 

The board approved the following policies whose public input period expired:
