Inside HR Services

HR Services membership invoices are due

As of Oct. 1, TASB HR Services started a new membership year. Invoices were sent to our program contacts in August. If you haven’t renewed your HR Services membership, be sure to do so to avoid losing access to critical resources for members, including DataCentral, the HR Library, our Model Job Descriptions, and our Model Employee Handbook.

Tracy Morris promoted to associate consultant

Tracy Morris, one of our HR data analysts, was recently promoted to associate consultant. She'll continue to assist districts with analytical support for consulting services as well as compensation planning and development.


HR Academy just weeks away

Our annual HR Academy is set to begin October 31 at Austin Mariott North. Co-sponsored by TASB and the Texas Association of School Personnel Administrators (TASPA), the HR Academy provides new administrators with the information and resources they need to meet the challenges of a career in HR.

Experienced school HR administrators, HR consultants, and a school law attorney are the seminar facilitators and presenters. Topic sessions cover the primary HR functions and critical issues every new administrator encounters. Opportunities to participate in hands-on learning activities and the best ways to use HR resources are the focal point of this seminar. A resource notebook is included in the registration fee.
