Under Executive Order 1996-1, all agencies under the Governor's jurisdiction are required to compile and publish a listing of nonregulatory documents. This catalogue includes policy statements, guidance manuals, decisions, rules and other written materials, and is published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin annually on the first Saturday in August. The Administration provides this listing to make sure the public is aware of and has access to documents to help them understand and comply with state regulations, policies and guidelines. Following is the Department of Education's portion of that Catalogue of Nonregulatory Documents listing printed on August 2, 2009 in addition to other information to clarify the purpose of the document.
