Personnel Commission

To ensure that employees’ rights are protected under law, California has provided for the establishment of a Classified Personnel Commission. The Personnel Commission is composed of three individual Walnut Valley Unified School District residents, and are “known adherents to the principles of the Merit System.” Under California Education Code, the term of office of each commissioner is a three (3) year period; each commissioner serving in staggered terms.
  • One commissioner is selected by the Classified School Employees Association (CSEA).
  • One is selected by the Governing Board.
  • The third commissioner is selected by the CSEA Appointee and the Board Appointee.
  • The Personnel Commission maintains a classification plan which groups positions into classes on the basis of duties and responsibilities assigned by the Governing Board. They establish rules for the examination of candidates for classified positions and ensure the application of the Merit System appointment procedures. The Commission hears appeals of disciplinary actions and approves rules and regulations to ensure the efficiency of the classified service and the implementation of the Merit System.

The Personnel Commission is responsible for maintaining the Merit System for school district classified employees.  All candidates compete on equal terms for classified service employment and every individual is guaranteed fair and equitable treatment.  The Commission meets each month and conducts scheduled site visitations for the purpose of meeting with classified employees and exchanging information.

  • Employees are hired and promoted on the basis of ability.
  • Open competition exists throughout the hiring process.
  • Appointments are free from the political arena or personal favoritism.
  • Employees doing like work are classified the same and receive like compensation.
  • Rules are fairly and impartially administered to all employees.
  • Applicants and employees are assured fair treatment in all aspects of personnel administration without regard to political affiliation, gender, religious creed, physical limitations and with proper regard for their privacy and constitutional rights as citizens.
