Legislation and policies
Guidelines and procedures
The policies of the Yukon Education reflect the programs and legislative mandates of three department branches: Advanced Education Branch; Corporate Services Branch and Public Schools Branch.
Initiation of new policy or policy revision
A school committee, school council, parent group or member of the public may suggest, in writing, the need for a policy or policy revision.
Written requests for policy development or revision should be forwarded to the Director, Policy, Planning and Evaluation (PPE), Yukon Education. Requests will be reviewed and prioritized by the department’s Executive Management Team.
In consultation with the Executive Management Team, the Policy, Planning and Evaluation unit will periodically create a work plan to ensure that all required policy issues are dealt with on a timely basis.
A work plan does not preclude any school council, committee, board, parent, member of the public or branch from bringing forward a suggestion for policy work or policy revision on a priority basis, where required.
Roles and responsibilities
Upon receiving a request to develop or revise a policy, the Director of PPE will conduct the policy development process in a consultative way with the responsible sponsoring branch and/or agency.
This includes working with the requesting agency or branch to identify issues and affected stakeholder groups, develop a consultation plan, establish timing, approval and cost assessment and ensure the policy complies with all corporate and legislative obligations.
Policies will be approved by the Executive Management Team and signed off by the Deputy Minister.
