Policy & Bylaw 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 to be added to the queue.
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. The reviewer is also available to answer questions.

WHAT THE POLICY AND BYLAW REVIEW INCLUDES
  • An inventory of your bylaws compared to a checklist of what a proficient set of bylaws should include.
  • An inventory of your policies compared to legal requirements with suggestions for revision. The review includes legally-required policies, action-required policies, and any others your council has adopted.
  • A 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. 
MATERIALS NEEDED WHEN THE REVIEW IS COMPLETE
  • The KASC Sample Policies and Bylaws, which include language you can use or modify. Legal requirements are clearly marked so it is clear what parts are non-negotiable. These samples are available as free downloads with a KASC membership. Just use your username and password to login to Members Only on our website kasc.net. If you need help, contact [email protected].
  • KASC members also have access to any new or revised sample polices or bylaws sections that KASC has written or revised because of new legislation or action by KDE. Members will be notified of these updates by email twice per year and can access them through Members Only.

COSTS FOR POLICY AND BYLAW REVIEW
  • For KASC member schools: $550
  • For nonmember schools: $780 (includes the KASC Sample Policies and Bylaws needed to complete your revisions)
