District Policy

The Caldwell School District Board of Trustees adopts, revises and amends the policies that guide the public education of Caldwell students. All policies established by the Board of Trustees must be consistent with the laws covering public education in the State of Idaho and the United States and must follow guidelines established by the Idaho Legislature and State Board of Education.
As we go through this transition period for updating how our policies are accessed we have included this document to help navigate policy numbers and titles.
