SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 48
March 5, 1999

INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Board of Education Regulations
Enclosed is the most recent edition of the Board of 
Education Regulations.  Please note the changed format from 
the previous regulations revised in 1993.  In 1992, the 
General Assembly authorized the codification and 
publication of an Administrative Code for Virginia that 
includes regulations of each of the state agencies.  The 
new regulations of the Board of Education conform to that 
Administrative Code format.  As the Board promulgates new 
regulations or amends regulations, the department will 
provide you with inserts or replacements so that you can 
maintain a current version of the Board's regulations.

Should you have any questions, you may contact Dr. James E. 
Laws, Jr. at (804) 225-2540.
