The WEA has been informed that last week at the Principals Symposium it was announced that all GCN training MUST be completed by OCTOBER 15, 2014.
Since the date is so close to the beginning of the school year, we reached out to Central Administration to clarify the date change (from January 15 last year). Below you will find the response that was received from HR regarding GCN.
“Yes that is correct the due date is October 15th. As I understand staff members have plenty to do for the new year it is also the position of the district to make sure staff members are properly training to ensure the safety of children and staff members. These trainings are not negotiable. As I’m sure you understand staff members must know their rights and policies and procedure to federal & state laws. Therefore we’re able to avoid problematic issues during the year.”
Therefore, it is required that all staff complete GCN by the October 15 deadline.
