We would love to have our Employee Handbook updated to current laws especially including COVID-19. It's also important that it makes sense in plain language so that our multi-lingual staff team can best understand everything about our organization's employment policies.
This project is important as we integrate workforce development more into our organization model. We currently have a new set of staff who want to be best prepared to train future staff on the work ahead.
Bay Area Parent Leadership Action Network (PLAN) is an Oakland based organization that develops the leadership and builds the power of parents to transform schools so that all students achieve their student succes
We train parents and families to believe that their voices matter, while we develop their skills and knowledge that will strengthen their capacity to advocate for their children. We build strong school-based partnerships among families, teachers, staff and principals using transformative family engagement practices that transform schools. We organize a network of parents from different cultures who support each other, create a shared analysis of institutional racism's impact on students of color, and an understanding of the need for systemic change. We develop parent leaders who build a membership and support base of families, teachers, staff, and principals to organize campaigns that promote change- in values, practices, system design and resources.
