Hey, Loyal Readers, I hope you noticed that last week we told you about a teacher contract nonrenewal case recently decided by T.E.A. in favor of the school district (see Daily Dawg, November 5). The week before that we highlighted how a positive evaluation for a weak employee can hamstring your efforts to improve the staff (see Daily Dawg October 29). These cases illustrate how important it is for administrators to have the Essential Knowledge and Skills to make tough personnel decisions.
We can help with that. On November 17 our firm offers an on-demand webinar about Employment Contract Decisions. Attorneys Robb Decker and Leandra Costilla Ortiz will lead the discussion with an emphasis on the practical steps that lead to a defensible decision. Improving the quality of the staff has a direct impact on the quality of the services you provide to the students, and it’s one of the few things that you have a lot of control over. School administrators select, develop, and evaluate staff in order to make decisions about retention and nonrenewal. All of that has legal implications, so I hope you will join Robb and Leandra for this informative and practical guide to the key issues.
