AAV of Employee Classification Examples

Accessible Alternative Version (AAV) of Employee Classification Examples.

This page is the Accessible Alternative Version (AAV) of the Employee Classification Examples. The scanned Employee Classification Examples (PDF) version is considered to be the official version of the document.

The hypothetical position descriptions included in this supplement were created to illustrate provisions of law that are commonly misinterpreted or that are the topic of frequent questions. Classification of similarly titled positions in your district will vary according to actual duties being performed by each individual employee. The general principles identified in these examples will, however, be helpful in the classification process of all employees. Therefore, it is suggested that the district staff review all the examples.
