Guidelines for Formatting Board Items

  • Use 12-point Arial font with 1” margins all around.
  • Justify the body of the document.
  • Place page numbers in a footer on the bottom right hand side in 10-point Arial font.
  • Do not use a decimal point or zeros to a whole dollar amount (ex. $5 not $5.00). However, if any amount contains cents, add a decimal point and two zeros to all whole dollar amounts to maintain a uniform appearance.
  • Attach any laws or policies referenced in the board item as backup material.
