Code No. 404.2
LICENSED EMPLOYEE – QUALIFICATIONS, RECRUITMENT, SELECTION
Policy: Persons interested in a licensed position, other than administrative positions which will be employed in accordance with board policies in Series 300, “Administration,” will have an opportunity to apply and qualify for licensed positions in the school district without regard to age, race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. Job applicants for licensed 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 license, if required for the position.
Announcement of the position is in a manner which the superintendent believes will inform potential applicants about the position. Applications for employment may be obtained from the current on-line application system where a link can be found on our district website: www.anamosa.k12.ia.us and submitted to the school district administrative offices. Whenever possible, the preliminary screening of applicants will be conducted by the administrator who will be directly supervising and overseeing the person being hired.
The board will employ licensed employees after receiving a recommendation from the superintendent. The superintendent, however, will have the authority to employ a licensed employee on a temporary basis until a recommendation can be made and action can be taken by the board on the position.
The requirements stated in the Master Contract between employees in the certified collective bargaining unit and the board regarding qualifications, recruitment and selections of such employees will be followed.
