The purpose of an employee handbook is to advise employees of important aspects of the district’s unique culture and organizational mission. It serves to communicate conditions of employment, conduct and behavior. The handbook outlines organizational expectations consistent with local board policies. The handbook model can be locally customized to meet the needs of each district and maintain consistency with the district board policy.
Additionally, the handbook provides employees with guidance regarding specific questions that may arise as a member of the staff. This helps defend against employment claims presented to the district, aid in organization and consistency in the workforce and provide for a common need to be informed and be a productive member of the team. Please keep in mind that this is not a replacement of a district policy manual.
