Policies and Regulations

  • Board Policy
    Board Policy has two components: legal and local. Legal policy is the result of Texas Education Agency rules, federal and state legislation, and case law. Local policy is developed and approved by the HISD School Board and is HISD-specific. The Texas Association of School Boards maintains both legal and local policy in Policy Online.

    Administrative Regulations
    Administrative Regulations (ARs) provide detailed administrative procedures that implement Board Policy. ARs, like policies, are accessible through a user-friendly system known as Policy Online.

    Policy Management
    Policy Management manages Board Policy and ARs, as well as monthly School Board meeting agenda items.
