Template Policies

This is an H3

Why reinvent the wheel? Use these template policies as is, or edit them to your specific district needs.

Colorado Specific Sample Policies

Word Doc Sun Safe Colorado Comprehensive Sample Policy – addresses hats, sun protective  clothing, sunscreen, shade, scheduling, health services and evaluation. It  incorporates all of the CDC’s Guidelines for Schools to Prevent Skin Cancer

Word Doc Sun Safe Colorado Minimum Sample Policy – addresses hats, sun protective clothing and sunscreen.

National Sample Policies

Word Doc Current NASBE Policy was created by the National Association of State Boards of Education and covers five important sun safety topics.

We strongly recommend downloading the complete policy and modifying it to fit your needs. However, we realize how hectic things can be so we've modified the policy to fit a variety of needs. Use the grid below and the feedback from your assessment to determine the most appropriate policy for you. Click on the title of the policy to download it. For example, if your school would benefit most from a policy that covered shade, sun protective clothing, and sun safety education you would click on "Policy_ShadeClothingEd.doc" in the far right column of the grid below.
