4250 - EXTRA DUTY ASSIGNMENTS

The Board of Education may find it necessary to employ personnel to extra-duty assignments.

"Extra-duty assignments" are defined as irregular jobs that occur periodically or occasionally such as, but not limited to, field trips, athletic events, proms, banquets and band festival trips.

Decisions affecting service personnel with respect to extra-duty assignments shall be made in the following manner: An employee with the greatest length of service time in a particular category of employment shall be given priority in accepting extra-duty assignments, followed by other fellow employees on a rotating basis according to the length of their service time until all such employees have had an opportunity to perform similar assignments. The cycle then shall be repeated. An alternative procedure for making extra-duty assignments within a particular classification category of employment may be utilized if the alternative procedure is approved both by the Board and by an affirmative vote of two-thirds (2/3’s) of the employees within that classification category of employment.

The minimum hourly rate of pay for extra-duty assignments shall be no less than one-seventh (1/7) of the employee’s daily total salary for each hour the employee is involved in performing the assignment and paid entirely from local funds. However; an alternative minimum hourly rate of pay for performing extra duty assignments within a particular category of employment may be utilized if the alternate hourly rate of pay is approved both by the Board and by the affirmative vote of a two-thirds (2/3’s) majority of the regular full-time employees within that classification category of employment within that county. The vote shall be by secret ballot if requested by a service personnel employee within that classification category. The salary for any fraction of an hour the employee is involved in performing the assignment shall be prorated accordingly. When performing extra-duty assignments, employees who are regularly employed on a one-half (1/2) day salary basis shall receive the same hourly extra duty assignment pay computed as though the employee were employed of a full-day salary basis.

The Board shall approve a salary schedule for extra duty assignments.
