Policy Numbers in Place Prior to June 2016

Welcome to the Cherry Hill Public Schools policy guide. The Cherry Hill Board of Education is in the process of converting all of their policies to the approved New Jersey School Boards numbered policy system. We have made great strides in this conversion and the most recently reviewed and adopted policies are listed in this numerical policy guide. This listing will allow you to review policies that may be of interest to you and will automatically “hyperlink” your choice to the full policy.
