The AES Board Policy Manual has been designed in accordance with procedures contained in the European Council of International Schools Policy Planner.
Basic Policy consists of the general guidance, objectives, and philosophies upon which the
conduct of AES affairs is based.
Policy Regulations incorporate those procedures, specific data, and other information which
the Board deems necessary to circumscribe school Administration operations. Examples
include School Emergency Procedures, Salary Scales, etc.
Policy Exhibits provide mandatory examples of documents which must be used by the
Administration to implement Board Policy or Policy Regulations. They may also contain "source documents" such as the AES Charter upon which all Board Policy development is based.
The Board Policy Manual will be structured to include basic policy (printed on white pages in the Manual), Policy Regulations (printed on pink pages in the Manual), and Policy Exhibits (printed on blue pages in the Manual).
No revisions, additions, or deletions to the Policy Manual language may be incorporated without Board approval.
The structure of the Policy Manual provides for information contained in separate chapters as
1.00 THE SCHOOL AND ITS GOALS AND LEADERSHIP
2.00 SCHOOL BOARD OPERATIONS
3.00 BUSINESS/NON-INSTRUCTIONAL OPERATIONS
4.00 BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
6.00 HEALTH, SAFETY, AND SECURITY
