All Virginia School Division Policy Manuals Should Be Online Soon

From The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers legislative report:

School Division Policy Manuals

Omnibus bill SB 795 (Potts, R-Winchester) requires all school boards to post their policy manuals on their school division website, and make the manual available to the public. This will make it significantly easier for homeschooling parents across the state to locate and read their school division's local policies on part-time enrollment, transfer credit, extracurricular activities, special education, and other issues. Currently only half of Virginia's school divisions have online policy manuals.

Here is the info on the bill that became law on July 1st. It doesn't specify the date the policies must be made available online, however.
