This school year, San Juan USD implemented PublicSchoolWORKS’ EmployeeSafe Suite to move the deployment and management of staff training, staff accident reporting, compliance tasks and other safety and risk management processes online. San Juan USD employs approximately 5,000 educators at 65 sites spanning five cities in Sacramento County.
“When it was time for our employees to complete their mandated training, we were challenged with being able to do so in an easy and concise way, and in a manner in which we could follow up and ensure accountability of all employees,” said Paul Oropallo, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources at San Juan USD. “With PublicSchoolWORKS, we’ve created a more employee-friendly strategy for training.”
To date, the district has deployed two mandatory training courses via EmployeeSafe’s online staff training system. The sexual harassment course, which used to be conducted on-site using a third-party trainer, was deployed online for all staff members. The second course, called mandated reporting, was deployed in accordance with a new state mandate. Staff members were automatically emailed a link to the training course to complete the training online at their convenience. Eventually, the system would automatically email Oropallo a district-wide report stating which employees have yet to complete their mandated training.
Prior to using EmployeeSafe, the office secretary had to manually track which employees completed each course using paper-based training logs and spreadsheets.
