How do I file a grievance?
It is desirable for an employee and his/her immediate supervisor to resolve problems through informal communication. However, should such an informal process fail to resolve the situation, an employee may file a grievance by following the steps listed under the grievance policy (GAE) which can be found on the homepage, under policies. Per this policy, grievances are not available to address personnel actions, including but not limited to evaluations, personnel file performance documentation, assignment, termination or not being re-employed.
What do I do if I am charged with an offense?
Applicants and current employees shall notify their immediate supervisor immediately if they are charged with or convicted of a criminal offense (except minor traffic violations).
I’ve been served with a subpoena; can the HR office or Jill Wilson get me out of reporting to court?
No, once served with a subpoena you must report to court. Often if you contact the attorney’s office who issued the subpoena and explain that you are a school employee they will work to have you come to court about 30 to 60 minutes before your testimony. There is nothing to fear in this process as long as you give factual information or provide the documents (report cards, attendance records, etc.) requested.
How do I have a document removed from my personnel file?
All documents provided to the personnel office (evaluations, commendations, complaints or suggestions for improvement) should be signed and dated and a written copy of the document shall be given to the employee at least five days before it is placed in the employee’s personnel file.
Every employee is entitled to offer a denial or explanation of the document being placed in their file and any such denial or explanation shall be signed and dated by the employee and made part of the employee’s personnel file. Any responses should be submitted to the Chief HR Officer within thirty (30) days of the employee’s receipt of the document.
An employee may petition the Board of Education to have removed from his/her personnel file any information that the employee deems invalid, irrelevant or outdated. The Board may order the Superintendent to remove said information if it finds the information is invalid, irrelevant or outdated. The process of filing a petition with the Board of Education can be found in board policy GAK-P.
