Changes to HR Exchange publishing dates for December

Because of website maintenance and holiday schedules, the HR Exchange will not be publishing any issues in December. However, it will run both November issues and return in the first week of January to resume its regular schedule. We want to thank our readers for their continued support and patience as we look forward to a great new year.

Extra-duty stipend survey launched

The 2016–17 Stipend Survey launched October 25. Be sure to take part so your district can create custom stipend comparison reports in DataCentral using your own data. This annual survey covers more than 70 common extra-duty assignments in athletics, performing arts, and academics. November 18 is the deadline to submit your data.

Updated federal poster now available
