A Distance Learning Workshop will be held on Thursday, April 5, 2007, from 1:00pm until 4:00pm. The topic will be “TRAINING CHILD NUTRITION (CN) SUBSTITUTES.” Procedures for training substitutes and resources will be addressed. The training will include topics such as safety and sanitation, appropriate dress, working with other food service employees and understanding some basic rules for federal Child Nutrition programs. A panel of Child Nutrition Directors will share information on local district training procedures for substitutes.

In addition, an abbreviated version of “ONE-MINUTE MANAGER,” the Distance Learning Workshop originally scheduled for February 1, will be offered during this session on April 5. This Workshop will introduce three practical management techniques for organizing daily activities that can be applied to working in a cafeteria, at home, in a business, in a family or in life.
