ABOUT THE PERSONNEL COMMISSION

The Personnel Commission is responsible for the management of personnel functions related to the Classified Service. These functions include the following:

  • Classification - The Commission oversees the process of defining, categorizing, and allocating positions to appropriate classes, arranging classes into occupational hierarchies, determining reasonable relationships between classes within these occupational hierarchies and preparing written class specifications.
  • Prescribe Rules - The Commission has the responsibility to develop, amend, interpret, and distribute rules for the Merit System, so long as such rules do not conflict with any area within the scope of representation that has been properly included in a negotiated agreement between the Board and the employee association.
  • Hear protests regarding the selection process - Assures selection of employees for positions are based on merit and fair treatment of applicants in the examination process by providing an avenue of appeal.
  • Hear appeals of disciplinary matters - Provides an impartial third party for hearing of disciplinary actions such as suspension, demotions and dismissals. The findings of the Commission resulting from such hearings are binding upon the Governing Board.

The Commission consists of three citizens from the school district community who are appointed for three-year terms. One commissioner is appointed by the Board of Education, one is appointed by the employee organization, and the third is appointed by the first two.

The Personnel Commission has an independent staff and budget. The Commission staff consists of a Human Resources Director and support staff. The Human Resources Director is responsible for the administration of the Commission's rules and regulations and acts as the Commission's professional expert in all areas of personnel management under the Commission's authority. The most important responsibilities of the Personnel Commission staff include:

  • Recruiting and testing of candidates
  • Certifying and referring candidates for employment
  • Processing of new employees
  • Performing position classification studies
  • Conducting salary studies and surveys
  • Interpreting employment rules and regulations and contract
  • Establishes and maintains personnel records
  • Serves as a resource to the District and CSEA

Personnel Commission meetings are held once a month, on the second Tuesday of the month, at District facilities. An agenda for the Commission's meetings is posted outside the Board Room at the District office and sent to be posted at each work location throughout the District. The Commission agenda includes the exact time, date and place of the meeting, together with all matters that the Commission plans to discuss and/or act upon at the meeting. Minutes of the Commission meetings are distributed each month to Board members, school sites, and each department throughout the District. Employees and members of the public are cordially invited to attend Commission meetings.

Serving at the direction of the Personnel Commission, the Director, Classified Human Resources, Alaina Reede, also serves as secretary to the commission.

PERSONNEL COMMISSION MEETINGS

The Personnel Commission meets on the second Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noted. Meetings are held at:

Administration Service Center - Boardroom unless otherwise noted
1234 Arcadia Avenue, Vista, CA 92084

Meetings begin at 3:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

SOCIAL DISTANCING FOR PUBLIC MEETINGS IN EFFECT:
In an attempt to control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to reduce and minimize the risk of infection, Governor Newsom issued an executive order on March 12, 2020, issuing guidance “limiting attendance at public assemblies, conferences, or other mass events.” In this executive order, the Governor waived the Open Meeting Brown Act requirements that require a majority of Personnel Commission members to physically participate in a public meeting at the same location. This means that Personnel Commissioners will be allowed to participate in Commission meetings during this time of pandemic remotely (via teleconference).

On March 17, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20, which among other things, specifically withdraws and supersedes Executive Order N-25-20. Under the new order, the requirement to make a physical location available for the public has been eliminated. The Personnel Commission can comply with public attendance and comment requirements holding a meeting via "teleconferencing" and allowing members of the public to observe and comment either telephonically, or otherwise electronically.

The District is doing its part to help in the efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by encouraging members of the public to watch/listen to the Personnel Commission meetings live online.

If members of the public would like to contact the Personnel Commission about this upcoming agenda, please send an email to alainareede@vistausd.org These comments will be shared with the Personnel Commissioners prior to the Commission meeting. If you wish for your written comment to be read aloud, please indicate this specifically in your communication. Requests for written comments to be read aloud will be honored, subject to the Personnel Commission's time limits on public comment.
