The School Board of Miami-Dade County
Bylaws & Policies
Unless a specific policy has been amended and the date the policy was revised is noted at the bottom of that policy, the Bylaws and Policies of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools were adopted on May 11, 2011 and were in effect beginning July 1, 2011.


The local community offers many programs and events that provide learning experiences that can help students become more literate, cultured, and productive human beings. The School Board authorizes the Superintendent to cooperate with the leaders of these organizations by making District facilities available and ensuring that members of the staff and student body are aware of the benefits that can be derived from education-related activities of the groups. Further, the Board encourages staff to make their many talents and specialized knowledge available, as time permits, to enhance the quality of educational activities in the community.

Community activities and events related to the District's courses of study will be incorporated, as appropriate, into courses as either required or enrichment assignments.
