Policies & Laws

The Ohio Department of Youth Services (DYS), like all state agencies, is governed by the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) and the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) as well as federal regulations and codes.  In addition, DYS develops polices based on ORC, OAC, other governing state agencies, and operational needs.

All policies are annually reviewed, and if revisions are required, a policy will be rigorously researched before it becomes effective. If anyone wishes to submit a comment regarding any of our policies, please include in the subject line of your email the policy number and title - 101-COM-05 Tours and Special Events Guidelines, for example - and send to DYSPOLICYADMINISTRATOR@DYS.OHIO.GOV.
