Policy Reference Manual
Stay on top of the most current laws governing Texas schools with the Policy Reference Manual from Policy Service.
TASB helps districts stay on top of the current laws governing Texas schools with the Policy Reference Manual (PRM) from Policy Service. The PRM is a comprehensive collection of federal and state statutes and regulations, case law, attorney general opinions, and commissioner’s decisions affecting Texas school districts.
The PRM presents law by topic so users can quickly find law about everything from establishing a district’s name to relations with other governmental entities. These policies and exhibits provide citations to the legal sources they draw from, including:
- U.S. and Texas constitutions
- Federal and state statutes, including Texas Education Code
- Attorney general opinions
- Texas Administrative Code, including commissioner’s and State Board of Education rules
- Case law and other sources of legal authority
Who the PRM Helps
The PRM helps board members, administrators, and attorneys keep up with current law and legal changes. With each PRM update, TASB also provides an annotated update packet showing revisions, additions, and deletions to legal policies and exhibits with explanations of the changes.
This valuable school law resource provides updated legal policies that are not included in a district’s customized Policy Online® manual until the board has acted on a numbered update.
The Policy Reference Manual is available in Policy Online® under More TASB Resources.
A TASB Policy Service membership is required to access the PRM.
