Evergreen Solutions is engaged with the Blaine County School District No.61 to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study for Administrators, Certified Employees, Classified Employees, Athletic Coaches, and Stipended positions. Evergreen will conduct job analysis analysis and provide recommendations to update and/or create accurate job descriptions for the selected positions. The analysis will include recommendations to condense position descriptions where positions are of the same job family and classification as well as to create internal career “ladders” for some positions (e.g., Custodian I, II, Lead Custodian, Custodial Supervisor). Evergreen will further conduct an external market study of comparative employers to determine if salaries in all categories are competitive. The study will include a compensation plan focused on internal equity and will include a guideline for future new job descriptions and related compensation as well as how to review established job descriptions and make related adjustments to compensation. In the end, Evergreen will recommend a classification and compensation structure that will attract and retain high caliber employees, and that will employ a clear path of career progression.
