    link to board docs All currently adopted policies are available within BoardDocs under the Policy tab.  
    The Pittsburgh Board of Public Education, as the policy-making body for the District, maintains all governing policies under the guidance of staff, community, legal council and the Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA).  The holds regular policy workshops as a part of its comprehensive review of District policies when and where policy changes are necessary.  All policies are voted on during public Legislative meetings.

    The current policy manual has nine sections that include more than 1,000 policies.  When necessary, the Board’s Policy Committee may make revisions to a section and present these revisions to the full Board at a Board Policy Workshop. Any revisions to Board policy require a Board vote and revisions are open for public comment and viewing before a vote occurs.  All revision documents are posted here when there is a policy up for adoption. 
    All formal policies are posted on BoardDocs, our online Board Meeting and Policy Management System.
