A proposal to consolidate several school-support employee salary schedules, a proposed timeline for a possible general obligation bond, and a governing board self-evaluation are on the agenda when Dixon Unified leaders meet tonight in Dixon.
The five-member governing board likely will approve the combining of four salary schedules into one for all positions represented by Local 1021 of Service Employees International Union, with an effective date of Jan. 1, 2016.
The previous models of the salary schedules were confusing in their design and had two different approaches to professional growth and longevity, Phoebe Girimonte, the district’s human resources coordinator, wrote in agenda documents. The consolidation, if approved, is expected to cost the rural district $85,000 during the current year, $175,000 in 2016-17 and $181,000 in 2017-18, according to wording in the agenda.
