Good idea to review those building files!
It's a good practice to review your building file at least once a year to ensure that the information in it is accurate, up-
to-date, and relevant to your current assignment.
For those of you who have been with the district for many years, your building file (defined as supervisory or working file in the CBA) has the potential of containing very old information that may not be particularly helpful to have around. For example, a complaint letter from one disgruntled parent 5 years ago is not likely to be reflective of your career accomplishments, so it would make sense to remove it. Please see the
May Newsletter for more information.
