Employee handbooks are a valuable tool for getting important information to district staff. The KSBA Policy Service offers customized handbook development and maintenance for several groups of employees:
Separate handbooks are available upon request for certified and classified employees. For each handbook, the district's assigned policy consultant develops a customized, concise draft based on key board requirements, coded to the particular policy number, and adds local information as requested by the district, such as calendars and contact information. The handbook also contains an acknowledgment form for employees to sign and return, signifying they have read and understand the content of the handbook.
Once development is complete, the district receives an electronic version, with the option to request printing services. The district’s assigned consultant then forwards an annual handbook draft after the Annual Policy/Procedure Update each spring to assist the district in keeping the handbook current.
