Note on formatting of amended policies:

The amended policy should clearly show what words are being added to the policy and what words are being deleted. This can be done with "Tools-Track Changes" in Microsoft Word, or by highlighting the additions in bold (or a color) and use strikethroughs to show what words are being deleted. Highlighting all in yellow is not the best choice. Please submit the changes all on one document rather than in several documents.
