NSI: Policy Manual and Employee Handbook

NSI: Policy Manual and Employee Handbook

This week’s meeting will focus on policies. We define policies as the Governing Board’s written directions to the school’s staff about how the organization is to be run. Policies both provide a guide for staff and also protect your organization. We will look at the CSU sample policy manual and some of the essential policies you should have as an organization. We also recommend that part of your policy manual will become your employee handbook, but we will discuss some tips if you decide to have a separate manual for your staff.

IEP Development and Implementation

IEP Development and Implementation

IEP Development and Implementation – The Individual Education Plan (IEP) is the cornerstone for the education of a child with a disability. It identifies a child’s unique needs and defines the goals and objectives that guide the delivery of a quality education. This webinar will help school leaders and teachers better understand the elements that make up a well-developed IEP. New schools opening in the fall or new administrators who are unfamiliar with special educational legal requirements particularly benefit from webinar which will be presented by Mary Ahearn and Pam Connolly with the FDLRS Network.
