Managing human resources is a big job. No matter the size of the district, it is crucial that school leaders understand the importance of recruiting, retaining and leading quality teachers and support professionals. It is also important for school leaders to understand the various federal employment laws and to give them management tools, knowledge and confidence to handle employment matters. Join the OSSBA Employment Services Team, along with our special guests, for our full-day HR Academy where we’ll discuss best practices and legal requirements related to personnel management.
