Persons interested in a classified employee position will have an opportunity to apply and qualify for classified employee positions in the school district without regard to age, color, disability, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.

Job applicants for classified employee positions will be considered on the basis of the following:

  • Training, experience, and skill;
  • Nature of the occupation
  • Demonstrated competence; and
  • Possession of, or ability to obtain, state or other license or certificate, if required, for the position.

All job openings shall be submitted to the Iowa Department of Education for posting on TeachIowa, the online state job posting system. Additional announcement of the position will be through means the superintendent believes will inform potential applicants about the position.  Whenever possible, the preliminary screening of applicants will be conducted by the administrator who directly supervises and oversees the position.

The Board will employ classified employees after receiving a recommendation from the superintendent. However, the superintendent will have the authority to employ on a temporary basis until a recommendation can be made and action can be taken by the board on the position. This would include bus drivers, custodians, education associates, maintenance staff, clerical personnel, and food service workers.
