I. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM It was the purpose of this study to ascertain what topics and sub-topics in the suggested school board written policy outline by the National School Board Association and the National Education Association have specific references to the school code of Illinois. Also it is to point out the areas where the outline is silent, according to those citations from the school code of Illinois which pertain to the same topics and sub-topics. II. PROCEDURES The state school code of Illinois was searched in its entirety for provisions that (1) were applicable to the written policy guide outline presented by the National School Board Association and the National Education Association (2) were not applicable to the written policy guide outline (3) were not applicable to the study. III. CONCLUSIONS It has been established by this study that in spite of the difficulties encountered by repetition in the state law, the written policy guide outline, with revision for discrepancies, would be usable by boards of education in the state of Illinois for the preparation of local policy manuals. Generalizations were made with reference to the relationship between the school code of Illinois and the National School Board Association-National Education Association written policy guide outline. The significant areas of relationship are: I. The school code of Illinois was found to directly relate to the areas of (1) the board of Education (2) Professional Personnel (3) Curriculum Specific areas (4) Business and Operational procedures. II. The school code of Illinois was found to not cover the following general areas on the outline (1) Educational Philosophy (2) Non Certified personnel (3) Students, behavior, articulation, grading (4) Instruction other than specific subjects (5) School community relations (6) Policies concerning records and equipment. III. The articles in the school code of Illinois that did not apply to the outline were (1) those that dealt with violations to the code (2) articles designating reimbursement procedures (3) unusual laws (4) those relating to the school treasurer and his duties. The study shows that while it is possible to show relationships between the school code of Illinois and the policy guide outline it is difficult to find a "one to one" relationship between items on the NSBA-NEA outline and the school code.
