Complete Sample Policy Manual

Planning & Launching |

This sample policy manual provides a sample comprehensive policy manual that schools can use to craft their own policy manual. It is strongly recommended that schools do not just adopt this policy manual, but instead use it as a reference to develop a policy manual that will work well with the school in accordance with your charter application, charter contract and desires of the governing board.

The policy manual has been updated in July, 2015 to include several new policies on student health, employee compensation, additional procurement, student lottery and other various policies.  This manual includes all individual policies which have been published on this website prior to July, 2015.

This policy manual was developed for schools in Florida. While many of these policies may be usable in other locales, we would recommend measuring each of these policies against the statutory requirements in your state if you are not in Florida.  In the future, the CSU intends to create state-specific recommendations for policy manuals.
