The Board recognizes that it is essential for District, as well as for individual, accountability for each instructional staff member to be fully aware of the duties and responsibilities for the employee's position. Job descriptions document and describe the essential functions for each instructional staff position and thereby promote organization, effectiveness, and efficiency. Therefore, the Superintendent shall maintain, job descriptions for instructional positions. The Superintendent is authorized to establish job descriptions which shall include the qualifications, skills, knowledge and abilities, essential responsibilities, and physical requirements for the instructional position.
Job descriptions shall be defined as procedures of the Superintendent and will be originated and maintained in accordance with the provisions specified in the bylaws of the Board (see Bylaw 0130).
Instructional staff shall be evaluated, at least in part, against their job description.
Job descriptions shall be brief, factual, and, wherever possible, generically descriptive of similar jobs.
During the hiring process, the current job description for the position for which the candidate is interviewing shall be reviewed with the candidate. The emphasis during the review shall be placed upon the essential functions of the position.
Upon employment by the Board, the instructional staff member shall receive a copy of the current job description for the position for which she/he has been employed. The employee's immediate supervisor shall review this job description with the staff member as part of the employment orientation process.
From time-to-time, the Board further recognizes that the Superintendent may find it necessary to revise job descriptions.
During the revision of a job description, the Superintendent may seek input from individuals who hold that position; however, their input may or may not be reflected when the revision of said job description is completed.
Following the revision of a job description, instructional staff members who hold the positions for which the essential functions are described in that revised job description shall be provided access to the updated version and the opportunity to discuss the revisions therein with their immediate supervisor.
