The policy manual of the Union School Corporation had not been changed or updated since 1974. This was a concern of the Board of School Trustees, administration and the instructional staff. It was necessary to research any changes in the law, state rules, and administrative guidelines in advance of completely revising the policy manual. . The newly written manual as presented in this project will be adopted by the Union School Corporation Board of School Trustees during this school year.
