If a school entity has a need, chances are that PSBA has a service, expert or program to meet that need.
Policymaking is a mandated responsibility of a governing board. Developing and maintaining effective policies that comprise both local specifications and ever-changing state and federal laws and regulations is a difficult, time-consuming task.
Since 1976 PSBA has been providing expert policy services tailored for school districts, intermediate units, and vocational schools and career and technology centers. All policy service options are designed to comply with federal and state laws and regulations, applicable court and arbitration decisions and the specific needs of your schools. More than 500 school entities currently benefit from membership in PSBA’s Policy Services.
PSBA's comprehensive model administrative regulations manual contains approximately 550 administrative regulations. The administrative regulations contain details, procedures, forms and letters developed to enhance effective policy implementation.
Board Operations Guidelines
Board Operations Guidelines (BOGs) supplement and support board policy dealing with local board procedures by providing the detailed guidelines and forms necessary to the school board's role and responsibilities as a governing board.
Policy Maintenance Program
PSBA’s Policy Maintenance Program service makes maintaining an effective policy manual easy. PSBA’s experienced staff is actively involved in legislative, legal and employee management services, and can assist school entities in all policy areas..
Policy Manual Development
Make sure your district’s policy manual is professionally written and legally referenced. PSBA will craft policies that address educational issues, are written to comply with federal and state laws and regulations, and applicable court decisions, and are tailored to your school entity.
Policy Manual Review
Policymaking is an ongoing process, requiring school boards to review policies on a regular basis. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. If a district’s policy manual becomes out-dated, PSBA can perform that essential review. The service is available to school entities that underwent the Policy Development Program and have maintained membership in the Policy Maintenance Program.
