These monies will be given in addition to the salaries on the certified salary schedule. We do not know the exact amount of Proposition 301 funding at this time. State 101 monies at this time are $665. Certified salary schedules are available here and on the Documents and Links menu under About Us.
Classified Hiring Process
Applications are kept on file for six months. Building principals select a screening committee to review applications. Arrangements are then made for interviews at the individual schools and are conducted by the committee. The committee makes the recommendation for hire to the Superintendent, Dr. Tregaskes. This recommendation is then submitted to the Governing Board for approval. Successful candidates for classified positions must be fingerprinted and are responsible for the cost of the background check. Starting salary is posted with each job posting.
