Produce a procedures manual that implements board policy
IASB’s Administrative Procedures Project service is available to districts that have developed and maintained or updated their current policy manual with IASB Policy Services. The process may vary to meet individual district needs. Generally, it includes the following:
The district will
- provide a contact person and/or a committee of administrative staff members to work with an IASB policy consultant in the development and editing of the administrative procedures.
The policy consultant will
- develop and provide to the district draft administrative procedures based upon sample procedures and exhibits, as found in the IASB Policy Reference Manual and customized according to the requirements of the district’s policy manual and current district practice.
- meet with the committee up to two times in the district to review and edit the draft administrative procedures, and
- provide the district with an electronic copy of the final administrative procedures.
Contract fees for an Administrative Procedures Project are based upon district student enrollment. Contact an IASB policy consultant for current fees and the related payment schedule.
Subscribers to IASB’s School Board Policies Online service can have their administrative procedures maintained online at no additional cost.
