Professional Learning

Empowering Leaders to be Great Employers

This online professional development series is created to offer practical tips and legal guidance on the challenges facing today's education leaders. The workshops are created to provide seasoned and aspiring administrators with current guidelines and best practices on a range of topics. The convenience of online delivery allows access to the workshops anywhere, anytime — when specific information is needed or when professional development fits an administrator’s demanding schedule. Our goal is to provide the necessary tools and resources to assist every FUSD administrator in becoming a skillful, thoughtful, fair and equitable leader. Each workshop is complemented with a QuickQuiz to provide participants with an opportunity to apply information.

Fresno Unified School District HR Department developed this video series in partnership with the Fresno County Office of Education and Fagen Friedman & Fulfrost legal experts. These videos will be housed on the FUSD HR website.
