PCSSD - Certified Personnel Policy Committee Minutes: Nov. 20, 2013

Certified Personnel Policy Committee Minutes: Nov. 20, 2013

Present: Pam Fitzgiven, Judy Stockrahm, Joyce Bender, Loveida Ingram, Robert Austin, Paul Brewer, Janice Warren, Bill Goff, Superintendent Jerry Guess

Call to Order:  4:35 p.m.

Emergency Meeting was called at the request of Dr. Guess to discuss a one-time bonus of $1250 for all employees.

Mr. Goff distributed a handout “Process Regarding One-Time Bonus”. He stated that the bonus arose due to insurance rates. The District basically had 3 options:  1. Employer contribution could be increased. 2. We could add an increase to the salary schedule. 3. All employees could receive a one-time bonus. The decision to offer the bonus was made based on many factors that affect the District’s budget, such as: taxes and desegregation funding.

The decision was made to amend the original recommendation of $1000 to $1250.00 to be offered to the Classified PPC based on the amount the District has in excess. The Classified PPC met at 1:00 p.m. November 19, 2013 and voted to accept the one-time bonus of $1250 with an added caveat that they would receive the same amount as Certified if the amount was more.

Chairperson Fitzgiven shared her concern of how the bonus was handled differently for the Classified PPC verses the Certified PPC. After some discussion of the amount and when it would be paid to all employees, a motion was made to accept the $1250 one-time bonus.

Motion: Joyce Bender made the motion to accept the one-time bonus of $1250 to be paid in a separate check on Friday, December 6, 2013.  Second: Robert Austin

Motion Carried:
YES votes: Fitzgiven, Stockrahm, Bender, Ingram, Austin
NO votes: None
Not Voting: Warren and Brewer

Fitzgiven asked Brewer if he could print the Personnel Policies with the recommended stricken language that was approved at the November 12 meeting for review prior to meeting with the Community Advisory Board (CAB). Brewer stated that he could have that done. Fitzgiven also asked Brewer to please share with Dr. Guess that it is her hope that he will speak to Dr. Kimbrell in support of our proposed language changes to the Certified Personnel Policies.

November 21, 2013 the Sick Leave Bank will meet to discuss two applications. Carol Denio, Mary Green, and Pam Fitzgiven will be the certified members present. Brewer will invite two classified employees to the meeting.

Adjournment: 4:58 p.m.
