Job-Sharing Staff Members

A job-sharing assignment is the shared performance of the duties of one full-time, regular position by two (2) employees.

The superintendent/designee is responsible for recommending to the board when the best interests of the students and district would be served by creating a job-sharing assigned for a particular position.

The district reserves the authority to:

  1. Determine the number of job-sharing positions, if any, within the district;
  2. Require the employees to develop a written plan for sharing the performance of the position and to secure the written approval of their supervisor;
  3. Dissolve any job-sharing assignment, or change a job-sharing position to a full -time position held by one employee, at the sole discretion of the district in accordance with applicable provisions of collective bargaining agreements;
  4. Require job-sharing staff members to work full-time in the event of the termination or resignation of one of the job-sharing staff members, at the sole discretion of the district.

Employees sharing a position shall sign a job-sharing agreement annually, subject to the approval of the superintendent/ designee. The contract shall identify contingencies which may arise during the course of employment including, but not limited to, responsibility for participation in staff meetings and committees of the position to be shared.
