Submitted Questions & Answers

All submitted questions and their answers will be provided here after the event. Keep them coming in!

Staff & Professional Development Support Fund

How does the Staff & Professional Development Support Fund work?

Cornerstone/Performance Evaluations

What action does HR take to ensure that a performance evaluation and/or performance plan is submitted for every classified/operational employee?

Have supervisors on campus been given the right guidance and training in order to properly do evaluations? There have been many staff that are complaining of unfair scores as well as unprofessional evaluations, but are afraid to come forward in fear of retaliation. Just because the law says it's illegal does not mean that people's emotions and sensitivity levels will not be directed to that employee. Lots of time management has already developed relationships with HR and HR is more for keeping the school reputation in tack than actually helping the employee themselves.
