402.6 - Reduction in Workforce of Classified Personnel

The number of classified personnel may be reduced due to budgetary considerations or other good reasons as determined by the school board or their designee. The board’s decision will be final.

Reduction will be accomplished through normal staff attrition, unless the best interests of the school district dictate otherwise. When reductions beyond normal staff attrition are made classified personnel will receive a 10-day written notice of termination.

Any reduction in workforce procedure contained in an employment agreement and/or district employee addendum will be honored by the school board; however, such a procedure in no way diminishes the board’s executive powers, duties, and rights to hire, promote, demote, transfer, assign, and retain public employees.
