The Employee Compensation Committee's work to process Koff and Associate's market study findings will continue into Fall of 2022, after delays pushed the consultant's work into the summer months. In anticipation of potential implementation recommendations developed in the 2022-23 school year by the ECC, the Governing Board approved in June setting aside more than $12 million.
The ECC’s work will resume shortly after the school year starts, and will focus on:
- Analyzing and discussing Koff & Associates’ suggested salary schedules and work product,
- Identifying areas where ECC feels additional study or work is needed, and
- Re-evaluating the timelines for market study implementation recommendations
Why the Delay?
While it was expected that results of the study would be in-hand by the end of March, and potential salary schedules under discussion by ECC in April, the study by Koff & Associates has not yet been completed and the district has yet to receive complete drafts of all salary schedules for discussion by ECC. This delay has been caused by a combination of factors including response time from districts used for comparison, and the number of questions and additional information sought by ECC, the District and Koff to ensure the final analysis and market study was thorough and complete.
In April, the District and ECC received an initial summary of Koff’s work. This summary showed that Koff’s analysis of the 77 benchmark positions found them to be 3% over the study median. Koff & Associates then sought direction from ECC to affirm their recommendation that draft salary schedules be created based on the study median. ECC members voted to have Koff and Associates build salary schedule drafts that reflected the study median as a starting point for their discussions before reaching a final recommendation to the Governing Board and Administration.
