Former Public-School HR Director Cynthia Marchese to Lead Program to Support HR Needs of School Districts
Lusk Albertson, a Michigan-based education law firm, announced today the launch of LA Human Resources Services. The service is designed to provide school leaders with human resources expertise specific to the unique issues confronted by school districts at a reasonable cost.
Cynthia Marchese, MS, has joined Lusk Albertson as Human Resources Advisor and will lead the firm’s efforts. Marchese has more than 15 years of HR experience in education and most recently served as the Director of Human Resources for Midland Public Schools.
In her new role, Marchese will work directly with school districts to provide HR support and guidance, rooted in practical application and informed by her vast experience working for a large public school district. LA Human Resources Services will provide “on-demand” support for labor negotiations, recruitment support, compliance counsel, professional development training opportunities, and employment policy creation and review, among other HR-focused activities.
“School HR departments are often understaffed, underfunded and over-extended. Our new service offers HR leaders an experienced professional who understands the public-school landscape to serve as an extension of their team,” said Kevin Sutton, CEO, Lusk Albertson. “Our firm’s central mission is to provide ‘legal solutions so teachers can teach and students can learn.’ We see LA Human Resources Services as another step in fulfilling that promise to clients.”
“Competent human resources support is essential to the successful operation of a school district. LA Human Resources Services gives clients an opportunity to access experienced HR problem solvers backed by the legal expertise of Lusk Albertson attorneys, at affordable rates,” Marchese added.
Marchese holds a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership & Administration from Concordia University and Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Management & Marketing from Northwood University.
