District Updates Board on Implementation of HR Audit Recommendations

Oct. 31, 2022

Lindbergh Schools is implementing several recommendations to further improve student safety as a result of a process audit that was conducted this summer.

This summer, Lindbergh Schools hired an independent auditor to provide a comprehensive review, process audit and analysis of the district’s current investigation procedures and practices, Title IX compliance, and the policies, procedures and practices the district uses to address reports of sexual harassment and misconduct. Ken Rossics of HR Innovations LLC presented the audit findings to the Board of Education on Sept. 15, focusing on district strengths and opportunities for continued improvement. Overall, he shared that Lindbergh Schools is taking necessary steps in its hiring and employment processes to provide a safe learning environment for all students and create a secure workplace for employees as well. 

During the Oct. 18 Board of Education workshop, Chief Human Resources Officer Dr. Brian McKenney shared an update on actions being taken as a result of these audit recommendations. They include:

  • Updates to staff training

  • Review of district policies with principals and staff

  • Ensuring consistency in incident reporting forms and formalizing the form used to document complaints related to illegal discrimination, harassment and retaliation
