AWSA Update: You and Your Contract

Most likely a result of Wisconsin’s statutory administrative contract renewal timelines, December is a natural time for school and district leaders to take stock of their current employment contract and their future needs.  School leaders enter the profession to make a positive impact for students, and school districts want to provide the conditions for that to occur. The contract lays out the shared goals of both the leader and the district. We hope you find the following articles and resources helpful.
