Last February, the Governing Board approved the recommendation of the Employee Compensation Committee to fully implement results of a comprehensive market study
of the District’s salary schedules. In addition to approving the recommendation by members of the Employee Compensation Committee (ECC), the Board also accepted ECC’s recommendation to move forward with a Classification Study.
Since that time, we have partnered with Ewing Consulting to begin the process of analyzing every one of our more than 300 job descriptions to make sure that each one is placed correctly on our salary schedules based on the current responsibilities of the role.
The Classification Study allows employees an opportunity to share their current job responsibilities with the consultant so they can evaluate the appropriate salary grade for the position.
Here’s what you need to know about next steps for our employees during this process:
- Between now and March 8, 2024, any employee may choose to submit their own Position Information Questionnaire (PIQ) online through InformedK12. The PIQ is a multiple page document requesting details of the duties, knowledge, skills and abilities required for your position. For those employees in roles held by multiple individuals (such as an Instructional Assistant or Elementary School Office Manager) the PIQ may be completed by a group of employees.
- Once submitted to Human Resources, supervisors will review and may discuss any questions or clarifications with the employee by March 22, 2024, and then submit the PIQ to our consultant.
- Consultants from Ewing will then spend the next six to nine months reviewing PIQs, holding one-on-one interviews with at least one person in each job classification, and finalizing reviewed and/or revised job descriptions as identified in the Classification Study. Ewing Consultants will then prepare final study recommendations for consideration and possible future action by the Governing Board.
To answer questions about the process and elements of the PIQ, consultants from Ewing will hold a series of in-person and virtual meetings for employees.
