The Rowland Unified School District is currently seeking candidates’ letters of interest for appointment to the Personnel Commission.  Letters of interest are currently being accepted for the Board of Education-appointed Personnel Commissioner.  The current vacancy is to complete the three-year term being vacated, effective December 2, 2015 through 12:00pm on December 1, 2017.

The Personnel Commission is a public body responsible for the administration of a Merit System, which oversees the selection, retention, and promotion of Classified (non-teaching) employees in the public school system.  It is composed of three (3) members from the local community appointed for three-year terms with the term of one member expiring each year.  The recent election resulted in the current vacancy.

The RUSD Governing Board appoints one member to the Personnel Commission.  The Classified employees of the District nominate one member to the Personnel Commission, who is then appointed by the Governing Board.  The two members of the Personnel Commission then appoint a third member.  Each Personnel Commissioner receives the sum of $50.00 for each meeting attended in any one-month and other fringe benefits.  Personnel Commission meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of the month at 4:30 p.m. at the District Office.
