Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009) and ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), Education Code 42605 grants districts flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Kings Canyon Unified School District has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-09 through 2012-13 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.

The Governing Board recognizes that professional development opportunities enhance employee effectiveness and contribute to personal growth. Staff development for management, supervisory and confidential personnel shall be designed to build leadership skills and overall management efficiency.

The Superintendent or designee shall develop a plan for administrator support and development activities which is based on a systematic assessment of unmet needs of district students and staff and which is tied to the district's vision and goals.
