Employees who disregard this policy may be terminated. Personnel Assignment (GBE) The superintendent of schools has the power and authority to make assignments to the various schools in the district of all non-instructional, non-licensed employees, and all licensed employees. This includes the authority to make reassignment of such employees as deemed appropriate provided that the employee is properly licensed in the position to which he or she is moved. All reassignments are subject to review by the school board.

Reduction in Force (RIF policy) (GBKA-R) The Board of Trustees has the responsibility for providing and maintaining quality schools in the district. In order to carry out its responsibility, the board may abolish or combine job positions, reduce the length of the work year with a concomitant reduction in salary, the same to be in no event less than 185 days per contract year, salary of employees, and/or reduce the number of employees. When doing so, the board will take into account the following reasons for reduction in force: enrollment, educational programs, and human, material and financial resources. The primary objective of the board when reducing the work force will be the maintenance of a fair and balanced educational program consistent with the needs of the students and the functions and responsibilities of the school district. The board will consider the following factors, not necessarily in the order listed: 1. Criticality of the position to the mission, goals, and objectives of the school district. 2. Area(s) and level(s) of competence indicated by certification. 3. Experience, professional training and length of service within the district and the work assignment. 4. Quality of performance including character, teaching capacity and/or executive ability. 5. Skills in areas where the district has instructional and/or supervisory needs. Initially, staff reduction will be accomplished by attrition. Time Clock Procedures (GBRCB) All hourly or monthly salaried employees who are nonexempt (not in a supervisory role) must accurately record their accurate hours worked each day in the employ of the Starkville School District. The district uses a time system requiring the employee’s fingerprint or handprint to identify and record their time worked. It is the responsibility of the principal or department head of each school to ensure that employees are trained in the use of the time system.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
