ERATS Board Policies


The Board is continually reviewing district policies and updating their content based on the most current legislative and legal information.

This page contains a master list of policies.  Once the ERATS School Board has approved the most current version of a policy, it will be linked here as a .pdf file.  If you would like more information about a policy that is not linked yet, please email our Board policy contact Emily Falgier.  

Some of our school rules and guidelines are not in official policy format at this time, so please read the Parent/Student Handbook for further information.
