Introduction to the SDOC Employee Orientation

  • The SDOC Employee Orientation is an annual requirement to ensure that all employees are aware of and informed of essential SDOC policies and expectations consistently.

    All SDOC employees are required to complete the SDOC Employee Orientation within the first twenty (20) workdays of each school year (or from the employee's starting date) as a condition of their employment.

    Administrators shall receive a quarterly status report that reflects all SDOC employees, including newly hired employees, and each employee’s completion status. 

    The SDOC Employee Orientation Companion Guide serves as a summary of the information within the SDOC Employee Orientation and as a future reference.

    Newly hired SDOC employees may begin working on this requirement immediately by watching the videos linked within the SDOC Employee Orientation Companion Guide

    However, SDOC employees must access and complete the SDOC Employee Orientation Microsoft Form successfully in order to fulfill this annual requirement.

    The SDOC Employee Orientation Microsoft Form is only available to SDOC employees who are assigned an individual Active Directory account for the SDOC network.
