Policy 2.703 Audits - Adoption

Recommendation by TSBA

Policy 2.703 Audits

Public Chapter 383 requires that LEAs with findings in their annual audit submit a corrective action plan to the comptroller of the treasury. This plan must include the name(s) of the contact person responsible for the corrective action, the action taken or planned, and the anticipated completion date. We have updated policy 2.703 to reflect these new requirements. 

Policy 3.202 Emergency Preparedness - Adoption

Recommendation by TSBA 

Policy 3.202 - Emergency Preparedness Plan

This policy has been updated to include a new requirement, per Public Chapter 313, that each school safety team conduct at least one armed intruder drill per year in coordination with local law enforcement. In addition, this updated policy reflects Public Chapter 451's requirement that all schools conduct full evacuation fire drills at least one time every 30 school days, with two fire drills occurring during the first 30 full days of the school year. Each school will also be required to perform four fire safety educational announcements during the school year. LEAs have complete discretion over every aspect of the fire safety educational announcements. The distribution and content of these announcements is at the discretion of the LEA.

Policy 4.301 Interscholastic Athletics - Adoption

Recommendation by TSBA

Policy 4.301 - Interscholastic Athletics

Public Chapter 260 requires that students be excused from participating in a school athletic event, or related event, if the event is on an official school holiday, observed day of worship, or religious holiday. We have updated policy 4.301 to reflect this.
