Child Care: Managing Challenges, Managing Staff
Thursday, August 23, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
There is nothing new about the biggest problem of any school. It is always the staff. The most pressing issues are classroom excellence, safety, and morale. Recognizing that typical interactions with problem staff do not improve the situation, we will try a new approach.
First, the discussion will focus on setting up objective standards for these soft issues. This is followed by creating feedback systems to create awareness. Since no system is perfect, we face reality and prepare the problem staff person for termination. Lastly, we address the challenges of hiring the right person in the first place.
You will learn about objective standards for staff, action plans for changes, hiring and firing metrics, and more. The workshop participants will be expected to provide examples of problems they have experienced and either solved or not.
The entire Academic Administrators Institute schedule of events is accredited and counts toward achieving your required Staff Development Training hours for the year, and we will provide certificates of completion for your documentation and proof.
