Welcome to the Office Professionals web page!
Did you know that Office Professionals and paras are encouraged to attend a minimum of sixteen (16) clock hours of professional development annually? Campus based employees who complete approved professional development hours outside of their regular work calendar can qualify for compensatory or ‘comp time’ that can be used on specified campus professional growth days noted on the district calendar (up to a maximum of two comp days per year). Hours must be completed before the district designated comp days, and must be equal to the number of hours normally worked for that employee in a day (ex. half time employee must have 8 hours total or two 4 hour days).
Continued learning and skill development for office professionals continues to be a top priority. Face to face training, newsletters, and web-based training are just a few of the options available. Lone Star College Kingwood has a variety of professional office technology classes, such as Administrative Procedures, Keyboarding and Accounting. Programs are available for certification in Accounting, Payroll and other areas.
Thank you for your dedication to students and your commitment to learning.
