LITTLE ROCK SCHOOL DISTRICT

NEPN CODE:  GCP

 

PROFESSIONAL STAFF PROMOTIONS AND RECLASSIFICATIONS

It is the policy of the Board of Education that when positions are to be filled, consideration will be given to all applicants.  Preference will be given to persons within the school system when their qualifications are essentially equal to the qualifications of other applicants.

Selection for promotion will be made without regard to sex, race, religion, national origin, age or handicap.

Training, certification, experience, professional competence and suitability for the position will be considered in the selection of persons for school system positions.

Because it is the desire of the Board to promote from within when possible, teachers who become administrators will not be placed on a salary schedule which pays less on a per day basis.

The processing of applications, evaluative screening, interviewing and final selection of persons to be recommended for school system positions will follow the general procedures used in the selection of new employees.

The superintendent reserves the right to recommend promotion without regard to the screening processes when it is in the best interest of the school system.  If the superintendent exercises this right, the Board will be informed.

All promotions will be approved by the Board.
