Education is a cooperative enterprise in which all employees of the school system must participate intelligently and effectively for the benefit of the children. This school system will employ support staff members in positions that function to support the education program.

All support staff positions established prior to January 1, 2015 shall be considered to be initiated by the Committee. The Superintendent shall submit for the Committee’s consideration and action a job description or job specifications for any additional positions created after January 1, 2015 prior to employment by the School Department.

Although positions may remain temporarily unfilled or the number of persons holding the same type of position reduced in event of de-staffing requirements, only the Committee may abolish a position it has created.
