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 completed over the course of several years. 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 Reclassification Study.
Why a Reclassification Study?
A Reclassification Study is a review of job descriptions by a third-party expert to ensure positions are appropriately placed by classification and grade on the salary schedule. This evaluation is based on an assessment of the knowledge, skills and abilities required in the role.
“Aim III of our Strategic Plan sets as a top priority our employees and the importance of not only hiring, but valuing our people. The completion of last year’s market study allowed us to be confident that our salary schedules are competitive,” said Associate Superintendent of Human Resources and Employee Relations Barry Jager. “Now, a Reclassification Study will analyze every one of our more than 300 job descriptions to make sure that each one is placed correctly on those updated salary schedules.”
