411.3 Classified Employee Contracts

Code No. 411.3


The board may enter into written contracts with classified employees employed on a regular basis. The contract will state the terms of employment.

Classified employees will receive a job description stating the specific performance responsibilities of their position.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to draw up and process the classified employee contracts and present them to the board for approval. The contracts, after being signed by the board president, are filed with the board secretary.

The requirements stated in the contract between classified employees in the bargaining unit and the board regarding employment of such employees will be followed.

NOTE: If the board limits the use of classified employee contracts to bus drivers (which are required by law) that should be specified so other classified employees don’t expect a contract. The last paragraph in brackets should be completed and added to appropriate policies for classified employees in school districts where classified employees have certified collective bargaining units.
