Here is an ICCSD explanation of practices that will be followed this year in your library. Although some routines, rules, and procedures will look different than usual, every effort will be made to accommodate the needs of all learners and patrons as we enter this most unusual school year.
Below is a list of annual training that must be completed by all district employees. All training must be completed no later than the end of the business day on Wednesday September 30, 2020. It is extremely important all staff complete these MANDATORY training as soon as possible as there is no flexibility with this deadline. Those who have not completed the training by the deadline will be placed on unpaid administrative leave.
You will receive an email no later than Friday August 21 containing a link to access the materials.
