HR 101 for School Administrators is a three-week online course designed for independent school administrators, department heads and others who are responsible for supervising school employees. Learn how to avoid potential pitfalls in the areas of hiring, employee leave requests, effective performance evaluations and the separation process. The course provides a legal framework that will help you spot issues, learn when to seek help and avoid legal risks.
On an asynchronous online-learning platform, through sharing information about your school with online colleagues and by interacting with the class facilitator, you will gain an understanding of human resources that will enable school leaders become more effective managers and support the school’s mission. Discover resources for ongoing operational support, and establish a national learning community of peers with whom you can continue to explore human resources issues for independent school administrators.
Each week, a different topic will be covered asynchronously, so that while participants should plan to work for three to five hours each week on the class, the timing of that work can be flexible. The class uses a variety of resources including articles, recorded webinars and discussion boards. You will gain the greatest value from this course if you share information about your school, allowing the facilitator and colleagues to make comments and suggestions. Topics will include: recruiting, hiring, managing leave requests, conducting performance evaluations and managing performance improvement and separation processes.
Class size will be limited to 30 participants. Target Audience: Division heads, department chairs, associate heads of school and other supervisors.
