Licensed Employee Continued Education Credit

Code No.  406.3

Continued education on the part of licensed employees may entitle them to advancement on the salary schedule.  Licensed employees who have completed additional hours will be considered for advancement on the salary schedule.  The board will determine which licensed employees will advance on the salary schedule for continued education keeping in mind the financial condition of the school district, the education and experience of the licensed employee, the educational philosophy of the school district, and any other items deemed relevant by the board.

Licensed employees who wish to obtain additional education for advancement on the salary schedule must notify their supervisor by May 1st of the school year preceding the actual year when advancement occurs.  The superintendent has the discretion to approve credit outside the employee's area of endorsement or responsibility.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to make a recommendation to the board for the advancement of a licensed employee on the salary schedule.

The requirements stated in the Master Contract between licensed employees in the certified collective bargaining unit and the board regarding continued education credit of such employees will be followed.
