1120.01 - MANAGERIAL EXEMPT PERSONNEL

Administrators employed by the District and designated as managerial exempt have joined together in professional associations to further both the interests of public education and of the administrators themselves. Such associations can contribute to the orderly and proper operation of the District by presenting the concerns of the District's administrators to the Superintendent and to the School Board. Concerns of administrators which pertain to wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment can most efficiently be presented to and considered by the Superintendent working with a single professional association. While individual administrators will always be free to present their personal views to the Superintendent and/or the Board, it has been determined that, as a matter of policy, the common concerns of managerial exempt administrators on matters pertaining to wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment should be presented to the Board through the Superintendent working with a single professional association.

Therefore, providing that a professional association can show that it represents a majority of the managerial exempt employees, the Superintendent shall recognize that association to represent all managerial exempt employees on common issues regarding wages, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment. The Superintendent shall designate and inform the Board of the appropriate association to meet and confer with the Superintendent pursuant to this policy.

Manual of Procedures for Managerial Exempt Personnel (MEP)

The wages, benefits, and terms and conditions of employment of the District's managerial exempt employees are found in the Manual of Procedures for Managerial Exempt Personnel (MEP), incorporated by reference.

Except when required by State or Federal law, regulations, or when recommended by the Superintendent, the MEP will be amended annually, as necessary, subsequent to the completion of the "meet and confer" process.

Amendments

 A.The Superintendent shall prepare proposed amendments and forward them to the association.

 B.The association shall notify the Superintendent in writing whether it concurs with the amendments as proposed or wishes to meet and confer with the Superintendent concerning proposals or to offer additional proposals.

 C.Should the association indicate its desire to meet and confer, the Superintendent shall meet and confer with the association on a regular basis in an attempt to agree upon the proposed amendments to be presented to the Board. However, the Superintendent is not precluded from recommending amendments to the Board even if no agreement is reached.

 D.When the association and the Superintendent agree upon the proposed amendments to the MEP, it shall be presented to the Board by the Superintendent. The association shall, prior to consideration by the Board, transmit to the Board the association's support of the proposed MEP.

Association Rights

The following rights shall be provided to the association:

 A.Payroll deductions,

 B.Inclusion in E-Mail subject to applicable laws and regulations,

 C.Access to school facilities for the association's staff and officers to meet with managerial exempt employees at reasonable times which will not interfere with the employee's assigned duties, after giving notice to the supervising administrator at each facility, and

 D.Regularly scheduled meetings with the Superintendent, except when extenuating circumstances prevent scheduled meetings from occurring.
