KASB conducts `Lunch and Learns’ and Human Resources forums

School board members and district officials met Wednesday during KASB’s weekly “Lunch and Learns” virtual forum.

Attendees heard presentations from Mark Tallman, KASB associate executive director of advocacy and communications, and KASB attorney Sam Blasi.

Education leaders were able to hold discussions in virtual breakout rooms, ask questions and share information with their colleagues.

The “Lunch and Learns” forums run from noon to 12:45 p.m. each Wednesday through May 27. The forums are designed to help school board members and district leaders address issues and make decisions for schools during the COVID-19 crisis. The board forum recording is accessible to KASB members by logging in then navigating to member resources and then online learning. Here is a direct link to Wednesday’s forum.

There is no fee for the forums but pre-registration is required. To register, go to this link. Once registered, participants will receive a registration confirmation email from pinpoint@kasb.org that will include the zoom link for that week’s meeting. Registration is required for each weekly session. A different link will be used for each week’s session to allow KASB to provide a secure open forum for members to ask questions and discuss issues.

Also on Wednesday, KASB conducted the first of two interactive sessions on Human Resources Coaching and Consulting. 

The program offers pre-recorded videos from KASB attorneys Ashley Rohleder and 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 Human Resources coaching video is on the training portal, here.

The 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.
