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

I would like to add a career ladder to our existing personnel manual to increase transparency related to titles, career growth, and expectations. We already have a compensation philosophy but we don't share with staff as it lists salary bands. The project will entail reviewing our compensation philosophy and job responsibilities and salary bands and developing text to be included in our personnel manual.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a personnel manual and org chart, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have confidential compensation philosophy memo, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to allocate more to staff development

I would like to increase transparency related to titles, responsibilities, and growth but do not want to share ALL of the details in the comp memo.

About The Org

The Center for Learner Equity

Our Mission

We are committed to ensuring that students with disabilities, particularly those in under-resourced communities, have the quality educational opportunities and choices they need to thrive and learn. We accomplish this through research, advocacy, coalition formation, and capacity building with national, state, and local partners.

What We Do

For too long, systemic ableism has left students with disabilities an afterthought. The Center for Learner Equity is working to ensure that public schools-both within the charter school sector and beyond it-are designed for inclusivity and equity from the start. When we improve access and outcomes for students with disabilities, all students benefit. In response to these compelling needs,

Lauren Morando Rhim and Paul O'Neill launched the Center for Learner Equity (then the National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools) in October 2013. The Center is the first organization to focus solely on proactively working with states, charter authorizers, special education and charter school advocates, and other stakeholders to raise awareness, improve access, create dynamic learning opportunities, and address barriers that prevent students with disabilities from accessing a high-quality education in the public school of their choice. The Center's work is guided by four priorities:

Document & communicate vital facts to policymakers, advocates, and authorizers about the status and progress of students with disabilities in charter schools and high-choice districts.

Inform policy at state and federal levels to address barriers and create opportunities for students with disabilities to access effective instructional programs and individualized support in schools of choice.

Develop coalitions and form essential partnerships to collaborate, find common ground, and create economies of scale in order to change the status quo for students with disabilities in traditional and charter public schools.

Build capacity for excellence in the field that translates to exemplary supports and services for students with disabilities in the charter sector and beyond.

Since its launch, the Center has worked to proactively ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to rigorous educational opportunities in all public schools and to catalyze efforts to foster innovation that leads to equitable outcomes.
