Board of Directors Leadership Development Program
The North East Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC) Board of Directors’ Leadership Development Program (BODLDP) is a leadership development and performance compensation program.

The NEFEC Board of Directors, in response to members' requests for a more cost-effective method for policy development and annual updating, determined that the creation of a prototype NEFEC manual would meet this need. This manual is written to provide NEFEC member school districts with generally accepted school board policy language to fulfill two conditions: One, provide recommendations for policy or policy development in matters required by Florida Statutes (F.S.), State Board of Education Administrative Rules (S.B.E.R.), or other controlling regulations; and, two, provide suggested policy provisions for those matters for which it appears prudent to have School Board adopted rules.
