POLICY LIBRARY EXPANSION
MAIL YOUR POLICY MANUALS TODAY.
CABE's Policy Service needs to expand its policy library in an effort to provide a greater variety of policies from large and small school districts. To do this, Policy Service is requesting a copy of your school district's policy manual.
What is the Policy Library and how does it operate?
As a member of CABE you are entitled to request from Policy Service, free of charge, sample policies on a range of issues. CABE staff researches the issue and sends any related policies or articles which are in the Policy Library. Frequently sample policies from school boards in other states are also included.
Policy Service would like to increase the size of its policy library to provide a broader range of material. Many requests have come in for sample policies from a school district which is similar in size. Although the Policy Library has 55 school district manuals, Policy Service needs to increase the number of district manuals in its library in order to meet this frequent type of request.
What can your school district do to help?
Simply by sending in a copy of your school district's policy manual, your district will help contribute to expanding the library. If you have any questions or concerns about this request, please call, CABE Policy Department at (860) 571-7446. All policy manuals should be sent to:
