Tueth Keeney is proud of its commitment to advising and educating school administrators and personnel on the complex and ever-changing legal issues facing public schools. In the spirit of that commitment, Melanie Keeney, shareholder of the firm, recently contributed her time and expertise to speak at the Missouri Association of School Business Officials’ Business Support Workshop. Melanie spoke with the group regarding E-Verify. Missouri law now mandates that all public school districts enroll in E-Verify, an electronic employment verification system that includes many compliance obligations.
The workshop took place on Monday, November 9, 2009 at The Resort at Port Arrowhead in Lake Ozark, Missouri. It was an all day workshop targeting business office support personnel in public school districts. The Missouri Association of School Business Officials (MoASBO) is a nonprofit, statewide education association of school administrators and directors whose focus is on the “business” of education.
