Board Policies

  • As of June 30, 2021, The Governing Board of Santa Clara Unified School District has updated many policies in order to be in compliance with recent Federal and State mandates and changes in the law. These revised policies have been forwarded to the California School Boards Association (CSBA) for uploading to GAMUT's online policy maintenance service for our district's policies. Due to a backlog at CSBA, policies that have been updated are taking a while to be uploaded. Before printing any of SCUSD's board policies, please check with the Superintendent's Office to ensure you have the latest version of any particular policy.

    The Santa Clara Unified School District Board of Trustees regularly reviews and updates District policies to ensure they are compliant with the current law and district practice.

    Our policies are easy to search! There are three ways:
