IASB can web-publish the board’s policy manual at a publicly available link using the School Board Policies Online (SBPOL) service. The manual is posted on the same platform used for the PRESS and PRESS Plus services.
Board Policy Manuals Accessed via the District WebsiteThe primary work of the board is governing through written board policy, and the best way to communicate the board’s good work to its community is to publish policies online. Publishing the policy manual with SBPOL via a link on the district website facilitates online access to the board’s governing document with an easy-to-use interface. This increases board transparency and keeps staff, students, parents, and the community informed about the board’s current policy directives.
