Note: This local policy has been revised in accordance with the District's innovation plan.

Superintendent's Authority

All personnel are employed subject to assignment and reassignment by the Superintendent or designee when the Superintendent determines that the assignment or reassignment is in the best interest of the District. Reassignment shall be defined as a transfer to another position, department, or facility that does not necessitate a change in the employment contract of a contract employee. Any change in an employee's contract shall be in accordance with policy DC.

Any employee may request reassignment within the District to another position for which he or she is qualified.

The Superintendent shall have the authority to approve a request by the principal for an individual with experience in a career and technical education (CTE) field to teach a vocational skills course in accordance with the District's innovation plan. In addition, the Superintendent shall have the authority to allow a certified teacher to teach one subject out of his or her certified field if a principal submits in writing to the Superintendent the reason for the request. [See DBA]

Campus Assignments

The principal's criteria for approval of campus assignments and reassignments shall be consistent with District policy regarding equal opportunity employment, and with staffing patterns approved in the District and campus plans. [See BQ series] In exercising their authority to approve assignments and reassignments, principals shall work cooperatively with the central office staff to ensure the efficient operation of the District as a whole.

Assignment of Relatives

An employee hired after September 1, 2009, shall not be assigned to a campus where any member of his or her family is in direct line of supervision. For purposes of this policy, immediate family shall be defined as parents, children, siblings, spouse, or the spouse of one of these relatives. Transfers and reassignments shall also be restricted by this policy.

Supplemental Duties

Noncontractual supplemental duties for which supplemental pay is received may be discontinued by either party at any time. An employee who wishes to relinquish a paid supplemental duty may do so by notifying the Superintendent or designee in writing. Paid supplemental duties are not part of the District's contractual obligation to the employee, and an employee shall hold no expectation of continuing assignment to any paid supplemental duty.

Work Calendars and Schedules

Subject to the Board-adopted budget and compensation plan and in harmony with employment contracts, the Superintendent shall determine required work calendars for all employees. [See DC, EB]

Daily time schedules for all employees shall be determined by the Superintendent or designee and principals.
