New administrator appraisal samples

Sample appraisal forms for non-instructional administrator positions are now available in the Employee Performance section of the HR Library. Two sample forms are provided: one for executive level positions and another for the director and coordinator level. The samples provide a framework for developing forms for specific positions and include general responsibilities and skills common to each level. Specialized responsibilities and skills need to be entered for each position. These can be identified using the sample criteria in HR Library or the position job description. 

SB 7 reporting requirements added to HR Library

The following HR Library topics have been updated to incorporate changes as a result of the 85th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature. Senate Bill 7 requirements for reporting educator misconduct and criminal history was added to the following topics:
  • Parent Notification Requirements
  • HR Reporting Requirements
  • Termination of Contract Employees
  • Sexual Harassment of Students by Employees
