The Commission will review all applications and make the final appointment, which will be effective December 1, 2022. Commission appointments are for a three-year term.
To qualify for appointment to the Sacramento County Office of Education Personnel Commission, an applicant must:
- be a registered voter and resident within SCOE’s territorial jurisdiction, and
- support the concepts of employment, the continuance of employment, in-service promotional opportunities, and other related matters on the basis of merit and fitness.
Personnel Commissioners have the following responsibilities:
- Ensure that classified employees receive fair and equitable treatment
- Represent the public’s interest by providing a personnel system dedicated to the hiring and retaining of the best-qualified employees
- Work in cooperation with the County Superintendent’s administrators in the quest for competent employees and good personnel administration
The three-member Personnel Commission is the public body responsible for the administration of SCOE’s Merit System, a civil service system for classified employees meant to foster the advancement of their career service. To execute these responsibilities, California Education Code requires Personnel Commissioners to classify positions; hear appeals of disciplinary and dismissal matters, and protests involving examinations, selection, and appointment procedures; and prescribe rules related to a variety of personnel practices.
The Commission typically meets monthly in the evening. Commissioners are paid $50 per meeting and are eligible to receive fringe benefits (health, dental, vision, etc.).
