Update Preview

Districts will begin receiving Update 117 packets in late May 2021.

This update will include policy recommendations for several local policies and updated legal provisions in response to revised state rules.

Update 117 will include the following local policies:

  • CH—purchasing and acquisition
  • CV—facilities construction
  • DEC—leaves and absences

Contact your Policy Consultant if your district is considering revisions to any of these local policies.

Remember: Timely adoption of your localized updates is important to ensure that your manual reflects current law.

Local Policy Overview:

Beginning with Update 116, the redesigned publication Local Policy Overview replaced Vantage Points.

Like Vantage Points, the Local Policy Overview provides a general, high-level overview of the changes to the local policies included in TASB updates.

Presented in both video and written document formats, the Local Policy Overview will be available in late May on myTASB in Policy Manual Update Resources. From there, you may forward it electronically or print the written document for distribution to staff and board members.

Regulations Resource Manual (RRM) Update 63 will be available in mid-May. This RRM update will include revisions to model regulations and forms corresponding with Update 117.

District superintendents, superintendent administrative assistants, and policy contacts will receive an email from Policy Service when the revised RRM is online.
