Policy & Bylaw Review Service
Currently we have a wait list for this 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. The reviewer is also available to you via phone or email to answer questions.

WHAT 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.
  • 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.
MATERIALS NEEDED WHEN THE REVIEW IS COMPLETE
  • The KASC Policy Kit and Bylaws Kit, which include sample policies and bylaws with language you can use or modify. These kits 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 Policy and Bylaws kits to be sent to you)
