Whether you need a sample board policy, information and analysis on key education issues or help to update your district policies, SCSBA is ready to assist.

The annual policy and legal service update service includes the following benefits:

  • The Policy and Legislative Update publication.
  • Review of new or revised policies formally adopted by the board for content, format and legal compliance.
  • Review of proposed policies prior to adoption at the district’s request.
  • Draft of sample policies not found in our model at the district’s request.
  • Model policies and information regarding “hot” topics throughout the year.
  • Review of board minutes for board decisions which may warrant new policy or a change in existing policy and for board action which is contradictory to board policy or FOIA laws.

For additional information, contact Dr. Tiffany N. Richardson.
