    3.) Discussion of California School Board Association Policies Handbook

    Background:   The Alameda Unified School District uses the California School Boards Association (CSBA) to host our policies online at www.gamutonline.net CSBA alos provides policies updates for new mandates and legal decisions. Throughout the years, AUSD's policies have not updated online to reflect changes that have been approved by the Board. As a result, it is not clear what the level of compliance is for AUSD policies. In order to bring  district documents in legal compliance in a timely fashion, this past May district staff and worked with a CSBA representative to update all of our policies at once. Staff is recommending we adopt the entire set of legally compliant policies at the August 25  meeting and make any additional changes needed to specific policies at a later date.

    Fiscal Implications: Preparation of the handbook cost $6,050.
