POLICIES OF THE DECATUR CITY BOARD OF EDUCATION
From time to time, the Decatur City Board of Education, pursuant to the authority vested in it by §16-1-30, Code of Alabama, 1975, adopts written educational policies, rules, and regulations for the conduct of the Decatur City School System. Said policies, rules, and regulations are incorporated into this Policy Manual.
For convenience and to conserve space the term "Board" when used in this Manual shall mean the Decatur City Board of Education.
