Product Highlight:

Staff Misconduct Reporting System

As staff members complete their mandated annual training, a newer topic of discussion is staff misconduct. If staff members are not equipped with the proper tools and training, they may feel uncomfortable or even be discouraged to report staff misconduct concerns all together.

PublicSchoolWORKS’ online Staff Misconduct Reporting System provides employees with a mechanism to report staff misconduct and other concerns that may create a hostile work environment or conflict with the ethical standards of the district. The Staff Misconduct Reporting System allows staff members to report concerns such as conflict of interest, fraud, harassment, sexual misconduct and more.

Once submitted, appropriate administrators are immediately notified to get involved and address the issue before it escalates.

The goal of National Bullying Prevention Month is to not only raise awareness about bullying and provide the latest resources to those who need them, it is to inform society that bullying can be addressed through education and support.

PACER introduced these new events and resources for this year’s National Bullying Prevention Month:
