  • Workshop: Laws Important to Christian School Operations
    A common challenge for Christian Schools is keeping up with the laws that impact a school's operations, protect a school from liability, preserve the school's resources, and defend a school's religious liberties. While we live in a litigious society, school leaders can help their organizations avoid unnecessary disputes and litigation through sound policies and a basic understanding of relevant federal and state laws. Provided by ACSI's Legal & Legislative Issues Department, this workshop is designed to help you has a Christian school leader gain a better understanding of laws that impact your school and help you guide your organization to better policies, procedures, and practices.

    Workshop Fee: $139/person

    Once again ACSI will be hosting an Induction Program this fall to assist teachers in clearing their state credential. We do this through the Sacramento County Office of Ed. [SCOE]

    COST: The cost is $1,800 per candidate and typically requires two years for a total of $3,600. Payable to SCOE.

    MENTORS: Each candidate must have a mentor trained by SCOE. If you plan or even suspect that you may have a teacher wanting to participate and you do not have a trained mentor on staff, now would be a good time to have someone trained via Zoom July 27 & 28 from 9AM to 3PM.  There is no cost for the training. Please send name(s) and email address to Rohn_Ritzema@acsi.org and he will see that they are sent an invitation.
