MALST Advocates to present at ACSA Leadership Summit
October 30, 2023
ACSA Advocates John Almond, Janet Morey, Gary Rutherford and Lloyd Wamhof will present a fast-paced, interactive session on Administrator Rights during Leadership Summit in Sacramento. The presentation will be at 1:45 p.m. Nov. 2 and will address issues such as:
  • One of your staff has filed a complaint against you and the district is going to place you on paid administrative leave and conduct an investigation. Now what do you do?
  • A parent in your school has filed a complaint against you with the Commission on Teacher Credentialing and a hearing is scheduled in Sacramento. What are your next steps?
  • Your supervisor has given you an unsatisfactory evaluation. How do you respond?
  • It’s October and you have applied for and been offered a position in another district that is a promotion. Can you resign in the middle of the school year? What are your rights?
  • You’re afraid the district will be giving you a March 15 Notice. Should you resign first?
  • The superintendent is unhappy with your performance and intends to reassign you. Can the superintendent do that after the school year has begun?
The presenters will be available after the session to respond to your questions.
