POLICY AND BYLAWS REVIEW SERVICE

Does your school need help updating your school council policies and bylaws? KASC can help! We can review your policies and bylaws and provide advice for revisions. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1 – Your school contacts KASC about getting a policy and bylaw review.

Step 2 – Our reviewer contacts you with details and directions for sending your policies and bylaws.

Step 3 – Our reviewer sends you, via email, extensive feedback with legal issues identified and other ideas and suggestions including next steps for a revision process. Your reviewer is also available to you via phone or email to answer questions.

 

THE POLICY AND BYLAW REVIEW INCLUDES:
  • An inventory of your policies compared to a checklist of the legally required policies and best practice policies (those policies NOT required by law but recommended because they involve issues in the council’s area of responsibility and require council action and/or guidance).
  • An inventory of your bylaws compared to a checklist of what a proficient set of bylaws should include.
  • The KASC Policy Kit and Bylaws Kit which include sample policies and bylaws with language you can use or modify (or disregard!). The Kits also include a CD with copies of all the samples as well as other information and forms.
  • For a full year via email you will also receive any new or revised sample polices or bylaws sections that KASC has written or revised because of new legislation or action by KDE.
  • A detailed written report describing any legal issues found in your policies/bylaws and how to correct them as well as ideas and suggestions to help strengthen and increase the effectiveness of these documents. This report may also include suggestions for committee structure (if needed) and ideas about how to proceed with the revision process.
