SCOE Personnel Commission

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Personnel Commission was established in December 1967 to administer the Merit System for Classified employees. The SCOE Merit System is a personnel system of rules and procedures, similar to civil service, that governs Classified school personnel. It is based on the principle of employment and promotion on the basis of merit, with the goal of obtaining the highest efficiency while assuring the selection and retention of the best-qualified people in the service of SCOE. The Commission oversees the creation and updates of Classified Job Descriptions.

The Commission includes three members who serve staggered, three-year terms. One member is appointed by the Board of Education, another member is appointed by the Classified collective bargaining employee unit, and together they select a third member. The Chief Administrator of Human Resources serves as secretary to the Commission. California Education Code specifies the responsibilities of Personnel Commissions across the state.
