SECTION 12: GENERAL INFORMATION

12.1 Professional Development

The school maintains a working environment in which opportunities are provided for all employees to achieve their fullest potential. One of the ways these opportunities are brought about is through training programs. In support of this policy of personal development, the school offers training programs for exempt and nonexempt employees in all departments. There are also training programs in supervisory and managerial skills. A variety of training courses are available to help employees improve job performance. To decide what, when, and where courses are available, ask your supervisor.
