Building secretaries go to law school at KASB workshopsScott Rothschild
New KASB workshops in Topeka and Dodge City this week helped school building staff better understand the numerous and sometimes-difficult legal topics they encounter.
School Law for Building Secretaries and Administrative Assistants was offered in Topeka and Dodge City to 90 building staffers from across Kansas. High demand prompted the scheduling of a second Topeka session.
“School secretaries and office staff encounter legal issues every day,” said KASB Attorney Ashley Rohleder. “They handle student records, deal with the ramifications of custody disputes, and are often the first to know about issues like tardiness, abuse and neglect. The School Law for Building Secretaries workshops are designed to offer these crucial employees the information they need to carry out their important work.”
Garden City USD 457 staffer Cheryl Shaffer attended the Dodge City workshop. “I’m glad I came,” Shaffer said. “I learned about official transcripts and whether I could send them to other schools, and in what form. I received some valuable information.”
“I think this workshop would be beneficial for all of our building secretaries,” said USD 457 Deputy Clerk Amanda Harms.
