In establishing salaries and salary schedules for support staff personnel, the School Committee will take into account the responsibilities of the position, the qualifications needed, past experience of the individual, and years of service in the school department.
Compensation plans will be reviewed regularly for all categories of staff. Such review, where applicable, will be carried out in connection with negotiations with representatives of recognized bargaining units. The master agreements with these units will be considered appendices to this manual and will have the full force of School Committee policy.
The School Committee will set the rates of pay for personnel not covered by collective bargaining agreements.
