Upcoming training for leave administrators

We're presenting our two-day workshop for district staff responsible for administering leave at TASB’s main Austin office. Managing State and Federal Leave, which provides a detailed look at all leave benefits, will be presented on Tuesday, June 6. Get a Grip on the Family and Medical Leave Act will be presented on the following day, Wednesday, June 7.
 
Get a Grip on the Family and Medical Leave uses actual situations in exercises and case studies to help participants learn how to apply FMLA regulations, identify potential problem areas, and develop procedures for administering family and medical leave.

Model Employee Handbook update coming soon

The 2017 Model Employee Handbook (MEH) will be released online in mid-May. This update will be completed before the close of the current legislative session. There may be bills that will require additional changes to the text of the MEH and your district employee handbook prior to the start of the 2017–18 school year. These changes will be incorporated into the online handbook by mid-July.
