PRESS - Policy Reference Education Subscription Service

A policy and procedures information and update service for Illinois school boards

PRESS – IASB’s Policy Reference Education Subscription Service – is a resource for school administrators, school board members, and school attorneys looking for well-reasoned sample policies and procedures plus the legal rationale and references supporting them.

PRESS has two components published online: a Policy Reference Manual and the periodic updates and revisions to it. PRESS helps boards of education and school officials answer the following questions:

  • What are appropriate policy subjects?
  • What is the impact of state or federal law?
  • What should be addressed in administrative procedures?

PRESS provides superintendents with sample procedures that enhance proper policy implementation (answering the questions of who does what and when).

Does this replace the local district policy manual?

No. The Policy Reference Manual available through PRESS does not replace the local district policy manual. Instead, it supplements the district’s policy proficiency. It serves as an encyclopedia of policy and procedures for every school district.

How much does PRESS cost?
