School Board Policies Online

IASB can publish your school board policy manual online

Publishing your district’s governing document online increases board transparency and keeps staff, students, parents, and the community informed with current board policy direction.

IASB has partnered with MicroScribe Publishing, Inc. to provide a service that converts and formats a school district’s policies into online documents, complete with links to legal and cross-references. The school district can link to its policy manual from the district’s webpage.
