How Does the Connecticut Online Policy Service (C.O.P.S.) Work?

  1. School board policy is converted into a CABE database using a sophisticated, digital publishing platform.
  2. Cross-references and legal references are digitally linked for full viewing by users.
  3. The database is transmitted to a powerful server and posted on our hosting site.

CABE supplies the district with a URL to include as a link on its school district home page.

When boards make changes to their policies, they simply transmit them to CABE and and CABE will post them online.  Updates are allowed on an unlimited basis throughout the year.

Year 1: The set-up charge includes the first 12 months of hosting fees and unlimited revisions during the year.

Initial contracts are for two years and renewable annually.

Fee: Based on school district enrollment and CABE membership.

Year 2: Subsequent Years, Annual Renewals: When starting C.O.P.S., the first year of hosting and unlimited revisions during year one are included in the set-up fee.

Districts initially enroll for two years, representing a commitment of the set-up annual hosting and updating fee; and agreement for a second year for the hosting and updated revision fee only.

Fee: Based on school district enrollment and CABE membership.
