  1. Fix and prescribe the duties to be performed by all personnel

  2. Create new positions;

  3. Specify the number of persons to be employed with each job category; and

  4. Set the initial salary for a new position.

In the exercise of its authority to create new positions, the Board shall give primary consideration to the:

  1. Number of students enrolled;

  2. Special needs of the community;

  3. Special needs of the students; and

  4. The operational services of the District.
