Assume you have been appointed as a school principal and are in the process of reviewing the district policy manual. Your task will be to compare one policy (e.g., dress code, personnel evaluation, discipline, student performance, homework, etc.) of your choice with a similar policy from another
district by describing the purpose of the policies and identifying the purpose of the policies and identifying similarities, differences, and the alignment to the district vision. In a narrative format, address each of the following questions. You may copy and paste these policies as appendixes to the assignment, but focus your attention to analyzing these policies in a narrative format. This assignment should be no more than 5-8 pages in length and include at least 3 references (in addition to the text for this course) from the professional literature to support your position.
Part 1- Interviews
After reviewing this assignment, develop a series of questions regarding the various sections of the assignment. Then you are to interview at least two principals or district personnel.

Be sure to use the APA personal communication citation method when referring to the interviews.
Part II- Description of Policies
Include the following:
What is the need for the policy?
How are the two policies similar?
How are the two policies different?
What are the strengths and shortcomings of each policy?
How does the policy match the vision of the school/district?
How does this policy affect the various cultures and diversity of the school
Does the policy take into account the ability of the district and school personnel to combine impartiality, sensitivity to student diversity, and ethical considerations in their interactions with others?
How would you change the policies?
Part III- Quality of Communication
Be sure to use the format for all FSEHS assignments and support your plan with at least three citations in the body of the paper with matching references.
