Policies and Procedures
These policies and procedures guide our operations at CREC. Employees must familiarize themselves with these guiding rules and regulations to ensure equitable treatment and practice throughout our growing agency. Our member districts are welcome to review these policies as a reference. CREC's policies were based on those drafted for school districts by the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) and modified by the CREC Council.
CREC Mandatory Title IX Training
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” On May 6, 2020 the United States Department of Education amended the regulations implementing Title IX, which became effective August 14, 2020.
Ethical Spending Guidelines
Proper and ethical use of CREC's assets is an unwavering requirement of all CREC employees and consultants. As a public service organization, we must always ensure that our spending decisions demonstrate our sense of fiscal responsibility to our member school districts, our funders and our community.
Green Cleaning Program
The State of Connecticut is requiring that on or before July 1, 2011, all local and regional boards of education shall implement a green cleaning program. It further states that no person shall use a cleaning product unless it meets guidelines set by theDepartment of Administrative Services (DAS). The guideline or environmental standard states that each product be approved through a third party certifying organization called, Green Seal. Therefore all products purchased for the use of cleaning our facilities will be stamped with the Green Seal logo.
