The College maintains a classification plan for positions which groups administrative, professional support, classified staff, technology support, skilled trades and law enforcement positions into separate salary schedules and specific salary grades. Positions of comparable scope and magnitude of responsibility are grouped in the same grade. All positions are assigned to the appropriate salary grade which provides equal pay for equal work by employees. A job description is developed for each position. This description includes a general statement of duties and responsibilities and describes the qualifications required for the position. Each department head has a copy of the job descriptions for positions within the department. Reference College Procedure 3.12.03.14 for additional information.
The College classification plan for faculty distinguishes among various types of faculty positions (full-time instructor, librarian, counselor, adult vocational/special programs instructor and coach, and part-time instructor). Appropriate salary schedules have been developed to take into account educational level and experience. Initial salary is based upon placement guidelines for education and prior related experience.
