3039: Employment of Classified Staff

The administrator or designee shall hire classified staff to meet personnel needs consistent with the ESU’s budget, instructional needs, and non-instructional operations. The administrator or designee may, but is not required to, conduct a criminal background check on any classified staff applicant, provided that such check shall occur only after the ESU has determined that the applicant meets the minimum employment qualifications. This policy shall not prevent the ESU from requiring an applicant to disclose his or her criminal record or history relating to sexual or physical abuse prior to any minimum employment qualification determination.

The administrator or designee shall discipline and discharge classified staff as appropriate.
