Policies

The Medway School Committee undertook a multi-year review of all the policies of the Medway Public Schools, which concluded in May 2021.  In partnership with the Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC), the School Committee revised and approved an expanded policy manual to serve as a comprehensive resource for the district that reflects current best practices and legal guidelines.

The updated policies go into effect July 1, 2021.  For policies in effect prior to this date, please refer to the archive link found here: School Committee Archived Policies
