Policies to Lead the Schools (PLS) is a web-based policy reference manual developed by NCSBA. It provides local boards of education with a resource for up-to-date, legally compliant sample policies. PLS contains over 330 sample policies, including:
All policies required by the State Board of Education and General Assembly;
Annotations that further explain the policies, suggest alternatives and identify where the policies may be modified to reflect local board and school system practices; and
Extensive references to legal authorities, including state and federal laws, regulations and guidelines.
PLS can be used as a reference for legal and policy issues, a source for model policies, and/or a base to revise a complete policy manual. It allows searching for complex terms, can be downloaded into a word-processing format, and provides links to legal authorities.
