Viewing Policy: SP 4200 Classified Personnel




The County Office shall fill each of its classified positions with qualified persons, consistent with position requirements. The primary role of classified personnel is to provide services that support and enhance the County Office’s educational program and operations.


Each classified staff member shall be held accountable for duties assigned to him/her and shall undergo regular performance evaluations in accordance with collective bargaining agreements.


Classification of Employees


The San Benito County Superintendent of Schools shall classify all employees and positions not requiring certification qualifications as the classified service, except for those employees and positions specifically exempt from classified service. (Education Code 45103)


Individuals who possess certification qualifications shall not be prohibited from being employed in a classified position.  (Education Code 45104)


Each position shall have a designated title and regular minimum number of assigned hours per day, days per week and months per year. A job description shall be established for each position.


The County Office may employ a substitute employee to replace a classified employee who is temporarily absent from duty.  If the County Office is in the process of hiring a permanent employee to fill a classified position, the vacancy may be filled with one or more substitute employees for no more than 60 calendar days unless the collective bargaining agreement with the classified bargaining unit provides for a different period of time.  (Education Code 45103)


Before employing a short-term classified employee, the County Superintendent shall specify the service required to be performed by the employee and shall certify the ending date of the service. The County Superintendent may shorten or extend the ending date, but the date shall not be extended beyond 75 percent of the school year, as defined. (Education Code 45103)




Classified employees shall be assigned by their immediate supervisors with the approval of the County Superintendent or designee. They shall be required to perform those duties prescribed by the County Superintendent for the position the employee holds, in accordance with applicable job descriptions and collective bargaining agreements.
