Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of existing Employee Handbook, or internal communications regarding employment policies
  • Edit or creation of a new Employee Handbook, which may include any of the following: Standards of Conduct, Work Schedules, Leave Policies, Termination Policies, Safety and Security, Anti-Discrimination policies, Compensation and Benefits policies, any Non-Disclosure Agreements or Conflict of Interest statements that may apply, and any other pertinent information
Additional Details

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.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Employee Handbook, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have knowledgeable Executive Director, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to invest in strengthening our Leadership Development Programs.

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.

About The Org

Bay Area Parent Leadership Action Network (PLAN)
Our Mission

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

What We Do

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.
