Code No. 400
ROLE OF AND GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR EMPLOYEES
This series of the board policy manual is devoted to the board's goals and objectives for employees in the performance and benefits of their jobs. Employees provide an important service for the children of the school district community. They may be teaching or assisting in the classroom, working in the office, maintaining the facilities, driving or repairing the school buses, or cooking lunches. Each employee plays a vital role in providing an equal opportunity for a quality education for students commensurate with their individual needs. While the teachers have the most direct impact on the formal instruction of students, all employees have an impact on the school environment by their dedication to their work, their actions and their manners. As role models for the students, employees shall strive to promote a cooperative, enthusiastic, and supportive learning environment for the students.
In striving to achieve a quality education program, the board's goal is to obtain and retain qualified and effective employees. The board shall have complete discretion to determine the number, the qualifications, and the duties of the positions and the school district's standards of acceptable performance. It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent to make recommendations to the board in these areas prior to board action. The board shall strive to fulfill this duty.
Board policies in this series relating to general employees shall apply to employees regardless of their position as a licensed or classified employee. Board policies relating to licensed employees shall apply to positions that require a teaching license or administrator's certificate or other professional license, certificate or endorsement, unless administrative positions are specifically excluded from the policy. Classified employees' policies included in this series shall apply to positions that do not require a teaching or administrator's certificate.
