Each school community is unique, as challenges and interests can vary greatly between educational institutions. As such, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for creating and administering school policies. Schools must create and enforce policies that are responsive and specific to their community values, while also complying with federal and state law obligations. In addition, schools should continue to update these policies to ensure that they function as designed and continues to be compliant with changing laws and guidance.
