    How does a Board Policy get approved?

    Each policy requires a minimum of two readings (reviews) by the Tumwater School Board before it can be considered for action/approval. Typically, policies come before the Board for a "first reading" at a public board meeting. The same policies typically return for a second reading, followed by possible Board action, at a future School Board meeting.
