Principals and Professional Standards
Purpose and Function
On a day-to-day basis, we handle administrators' concerns related to Collective Bargaining Agreement interpretations, investigate charges of contract violations, resolve conflicts between bargaining units and administrators, and facilitate the appeal and formal grievance processes. We also assist staff in contract administration that includes formulating policies that comply with contract agreements and suggesting solutions to recurring contract issues.
The Office of Professional Standards is committed to developing a high-quality workforce, recognizing that the highest possible standard for all school district employees is essential to ensuring attainment of high standards for students.
We work with applicants, employees, and administrators to ensure compliance with School Board policies and Federal and State laws. Our team provides services to schools and departments with all steps of progressive discipline, Equal Employment Opportunity complaints, mandatory Employee Assistance Program, job abandonment, self-reporting of arrests, and ensuring a drug- and alcohol-free workplace.
