School Policies

School Committees have a responsibility to create policies in order to establish the direction and structure of the school district using the authority granted by state laws.  School Committee policies have the force of law equal to statues or ordinances.  Policies establish the direction for the district as they are designed to set goals, assign authority, and establish controls that make school governance and management possible.  Policies are reviewed by the School Committee on an ongoing basis.  Changes made to policies are in response to state and federal regulations as well as in response to district needs and priorities. 

In compliance with State Law, each school district is required to post specific information regarding the district as part of the Access to Public Records Act (APRA) requirements.  This information is contained on the district website. If the information you are seeking is not found on this website, you may request copies of existing documents using the APRA Request to Inspect Records.

The policy and procedures for handling APRA requests are found below.

Requests should be sent to the Superintendent's Office, to the attention of Lettie Lemoi, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, at 29 Middle Road, Portsmouth, RI  02871
