Annual HR Department Calendar available in HR Library

It's important for an administrator to know when HR responsibilities need to be performed to plan for the daily, weekly, monthly, or annual demands placed on the department. Determining the needs of the district is the first step in establishing a department calendar. One way to do this is to review board agenda items for each month of the previous year, noting when particular items were presented to the board for consideration and action. This information can then be used to meet essential deadlines.

This chart is an example of how major responsibilities can be organized into an annual calendar. Administrators can edit this list to meet their needs and fit the district’s actual practice. Some activities may need to be shifted to align with the district’s fiscal year (e.g., salary- and payroll-related activities).
