Topic: Documentation Training for Employee Performance

Presenter: Meredith Walker - Walsh Gallegos Law Firm

ALT Leadership Strand: School Wide Culture & School Improvement

There is no doubt that creating and maintaining an effective and efficient campus focused on providing the best educational environment for students is dependent upon educational leaders who nurture individual staff members’ talents. A successful campus is also a result of administrators who clearly communicate the expectations staff members must meet, and who provide staff members the tools and guidance to meet those expectations. Effective documentation assists administrators in achieving these goals. This session will review the different types of teacher contracts, review the documentation process, address the importance of progressive discipline plans, cover documentation strategies, and work through common scenarios for participants to apply the documentation process.
