The purpose of this manual is to provide you, the reader, with a set of general policy and procedure templates that should be considered, adapted and modified as required, and thereafter adopted for use in a Literacy and Basic Skills program. The templates are meant to be a starting point only. This manual is not an exhaustive list of necessary policies and procedures for a Literacy and Basic Skills program or agency. Neither the publisher nor the writers or researchers warrant the completeness, timeliness, nor accuracy of any of the information contained in this manual and in no event shall the publisher, writer, researchers or anyone else participating in the preparation of this manual be liable for damages of any kind related to the use or misuse of information provided hereby. This manual does not purport to offer your agency legal advice. There are several legal implications involved in policy and procedure writing and it is incumbent on you to seek independent legal advice where you deem it necessary. Legislation and social policy are in constant flux. Therefore, it is always wise to seek an independent legal opinion when you are dealing with many policy and procedure issues because it is imperative that the policies and procedures your agency drafts and follows comply with all current and applicable government statutes and regulations.
