3111a AdmGuide_Creating a Position

The Board of Education has reserved the right, in its discretion, to create new positions and specify the number of
employees in each category. In compliance with that policy the Board has adopted the following guidelines for the
creation of a District position:
    A. Each position shall be preceded by the preparation of a job description for the new position.
    B. The title of the new position shall be the same as the title on the certificate required to hold that position
        wherever possible.
    C. Documentation will be made of the need for the new position or an increase in the number of employees in an
        existing category of work.
    D. Following Director of Human Resources approval, a determination will be made as to whether the new job
        falls within existing pay/salary guidelines or is discretionary; salary will then be set for the position.
    E. The new position will be presented to the Board with a recommendation for adoption.
    F. No person may be employed to fill a new position until the Board approval is obtained.
