Fourteen schools streamlining board policy process

Fourteen South Dakota school districts have simplified their school board policy process with help from ASBSD.


By signing up for ASBSD’s Online Policy Services, Alcester-Hudson, Bennett County, Centerville, De Smet, Edmunds Central, Elkton, Howard, Iroquois, Kimball, Leola, McIntosh, Miller, Redfield and Tripp-Delmont, are streamlining their policy books.


“The ASBSD Policy Service process allowed our school board to thoroughly review our policies in a streamlined and consistent manner,” Bennett County Superintendent Stacy Halverson said.


Districts on board with the Online Policy Service have the opportunity to edit current and add new policies in real time and can review those policies at any time through their district’s policy page.

“The school board and administration felt this was the best way to thoroughly review and make current the school’s policies,” Redfield Superintendent Shad Storley said.


To begin using ASBSD’s Online Policy Service, there is a one-time set up fee of $1,000 and annual hosting fee which is based on your district’s enrollment:

  • Less Than 250 — $300
  • 251 to 500 — $600
  • 501 to 750 — $900
  • 751 to 1,000 — $1,200
  • 1,001 to 1,750 — $1,500
  • 1,751 to 2,500 — $1,800
  • 2,501 to 5,000 — $2,400
  • 5,001 to 7,500 — $3,000
  • 7,501 to 25,000 — $3,600
  • Over 25,000 — $4,300

New members receive ten hours of in-depth analysis and review of their current and future policies upon signing up.


In addition to instant access and editing capabilities, ASBSD’s Online Policy Service provides members the opportunity to search the policies of their fellow districts utilizing the online policy service.


Edmunds Central Superintendent Karen Fox called the policy service “one of the most useful tools we have ever used to conduct a comprehensive review of board policies.”


“The format has allowed the board a plan determining the areas of most need and then provided the online guidance necessary to clean up, add and delete policies,” Fox said.
