The desk rewrite service is available for community colleges, education service districts, school districts or public charter schools. The member schedules their own meetings, and the policy service and adoption by the board must be completed within a 12-month time period. This service provides the member with one printed final policy manual and the electronic files formatted in Word.
Policy drafts are written using existing sample policy and administrative regulation language.
The policy manual is divided into nine sections*:
Section A/B - Board Governance
Section C - Administration
Section D - Fiscal Management
Section E - Support Services
Section F - Facilities
Section G - Personnel
Section I - Instruction
Section J - Students
Section K/L - Community Relations
*OSBA requires all desk rewrite project participants to convert to a letter coding system; a conversion fee may apply.
Using analysis information, policy drafts are written by section. These drafts are then sent to the member for the board or policy committee members/administrators to review drafts. The cost of a desk rewrite is based on the organization size.
