District Policy Manual

The Board of Education (BOE) is in the process of updating the Goshen Central School District Policy Manual. The Policy Manual is under review, and several sections are either being readopted or revised, and new sections are being added.

Below you will find the most recent revisions and/or additions to the Policy Manual, which began in December 2008. More will be added as they are approved by the BOE. The original Policy Manual (PDF) is also available for review.

The policies are in Adobe PDF format. If you do not have the Adobe Reader, you can download one for free by visiting the Adobe website.
