Inside HR Services

HR Survey in DataCentral covers teacher professional development practices

Our latest HR Survey provides an in-depth look at teacher professional development from an HR perspective. Take part to find out what other districts are doing in regard to compensation for professional development, scheduling, instructional waivers and early release days, and more. Visit DataCentral and go to the HR Data page to take the survey.

Use a peer review to improve your HR organization and operations

One of the consulting services we provide to our members is an HR department review conducted by a team of experienced human resource professionals. This external review can provide district leaders with benchmarking information, objective insights, and practical suggestions to make HR operations more strategic and efficient. Each review is uniquely planned and customized to meet the needs of the district. An HR review can be broad or narrow in scope and can focus on compliance or strategic issues or both. A list of services provided during our peer review process is available on our website or by calling us at 800.580.7782.
