State Budget workshops

School Finance and Management Conference

July 14, 2020

Human Resources Essentials—COVID-19, An Interactive Two-Part Webinar Series

When the world for families, schools, and businesses changed in early March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many local educational agencies (LEAs) were left with more questions than answers. As we settled into a virtual environment, guidance, new laws, and Executive Orders forced LEAs, as employers, to rethink business as usual. This new two-part webinar series will help LEAs navigate the myriad of employment issues as schools re-open and employees return to work. The workshop is divided into two webinars and will provide tools for working in the new environment, as well as an opportunity for questions and answers. Attendees will be added to a list serve to receive new information as it unfolds during the year.

Employee Attendance and Leave Management—A Two-Part Webinar Series

This workshop will provide participants with operational advice on how to effectively manage employee leaves in this era of continuing change.
