State Board of Education Policy Reference Manual
The Nebraska State Board of Education Policy Reference Manual is a collection of three different types of documents: Policies, Bylaws and Position Statements.
The State Board of Education has authority to adopt policies and bylaws governing its own Board meetings and the internal operations of the Department and are binding upon the Board, Commissioner, and Department staff until changed by the Board.
The State Board of Education may also issue general position statements regarding educational issues in Nebraska. These general statements are purely advisory, since they are not state rules or regulations.
