The Policy Resource Guide is a new, Web-based policy tool designed to assist Wisconsin school boards and administrators in the important tasks of policy development and implementation. It contains information on a wide variety of topics, including policies required by law and “hot policy” topics.
The purpose of the Guide is to help school districts develop local policies that meet their own community needs and interests while keeping in mind general legal considerations.
