4.        Guidelines

Staff Leaders, Building Liaison Personnel, Elementary Curriculum Chairpersons

The Staff Leader Plan calls for all staff leaders to receive the same remuneration since major responsibilities for all staff leaders are the same.

Building liaison personnel will represent staff leaders who have K-12 or 7-12 responsibilities at building level meetings.

Elementary curriculum chairpersons in mathematics, science, social science, reading, spelling/handwriting will chair periodic textbook instruction reviews and serve as liaison personnel with the building principals and central office personnel.

Employees Remunerated By School Support Groups

School support groups who employ individuals to provide services to their organizations are required to remunerate such employees utilizing the District's payroll system. All appropriate employee/employer withholding will be made in compliance with current state and federal laws.

        SC 111

        23 Pa. C.S.A.

        6301 et seq

Such employees who come into contact with students are required to provide updated Act 34 and Act 151 clearances.

If, at any time, the school support group no longer funds the position(s), the positions will be eliminated unless the Board of School Directors agrees to fund them.
