KASB 2020 Human Resources Coaching and Consulting program offered

Even though schools are closed due to the coronavirus health crisis, human resource issues continue to arise. To address these challenges, KASB has put together the Human Resources Coaching and Consulting program. 

The program offers pre-recorded videos from KASB attorneys Ashley Rohleder and Sam Blasi, online supplemental materials, followup virtual sessions and personal consultations to help district staff navigate the ins and outs of employment law and other legal and personnel issues. 

The KASB 2020 Human Resources Coaching and Consulting program will replace the traditional human resource academy this year. To register for the program, go to www.kasb.org/training. 

Once registered, a link will be sent for the webpage with access to six recordings plus support materials and additional information. Proceed at your own pace, take notes and jot down questions as you go then to join one (or both!) of the interactive Q and A sessions. You can also email or call a KASB attorney for answers to your questions as you work through the materials.
