Board PoliciesThe 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.
