Policy Alert: policy updates from 2015 legislative session

Policies of a school district, especially those negotiated with bargaining representatives for the protection of teachers, have the full force and effect of law, and legally bind the school district.




By Gerry Kaufman, ASBSD Director of Policy & Legal Services


Based on legislation emanating from the 2015 legislative session, ASBSD has drafted one new sample policy and amended seven sample policies and one exhibit.


The new policy is GBAA:  Veterans Preference


Amended Policies and Exhibit are:

BBE:  Unexpired Term Fulfillment

BBE-E:  Application for Board of Education Membership form

BDDC:  Agenda Preparation and Dissemination

DBDA:  General Fund Balance

GCD:  Professional Staff Hiring

JGD:  Student Suspension and Expulsion                                                               

JHG:  Reporting Child Abuse

JOA:  Student Directory
