The Charter Center hosts an annual Talent Recruitment and Retention symposium to bring HR professionals together. We have gone from basics of recruitment strategies to planning the full-year staff recruiting cycle; from thinking about how to retain the best teachers to building diversity and inclusion in hiring and developing staff.
Here are updated timelines for the submission of applications to establish charter schools in New York State authorized by NYS Board of Regents and the SUNY Board of Trustees with a plan to open in 2019.
Each charter school receives a grant for textbooks, library books and software under the New York State Textbook Law (NYSTL). The grant is administered by the NYC DOE, so all purchases with these funds must be processed through the FAMIS purchasing portal.
The McKinney-Vento Act gives important educational rights to students who are homeless, or in unstable or temporary housing. The Charter Center hosted a free workshop, presented by NYS-TEACHS, to help schools understand how to meet these students’ needs and comply with changes in the law resulting from the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA).
Topics Covered Included:
- McKinney-Vento definitions: Students’ Rights and Schools’ Responsibilities
- Schools’ roles under McKinney-Vento and the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
- Transportation and other school services for students in temporary housing
- Incorporating trauma-sensitive practices into school programs and policy
