If your policy manual has become outdated, our staff can review and revise your adopted policy manual to comply with current federal and state laws and regulations, applicable court and arbitration decisions and relevant policy issues.
This service is available to school entities that have completed the Policy Development Program and maintained membership in the Policy Maintenance Program.
To initiate the review process, the school entity will be asked to submit the following materials to PSBA:
- Current policy manual.
- Collective bargaining agreements.
- Administrative compensation plans.
- Student/parent/faculty handbooks.
- Current budget information.
Policy personnel use PSBA's policy guides as the foundation for the project, and incorporate relevant information from the materials listed above, to develop a customized draft policy manual. The draft policy manual is provided through our user-friendly web-based policy system. A cross-reference sheet that notes the supporting documents used for each draft policy and the reason for any significant revision is provided. Training on the web-based system also is available.
The draft manual is reviewed by the board and administrative team who recommend any necessary revisions. When review of the draft manual is complete, PSBA staff process the policy revisions for further consideration and adoption.
