Charlottesville City Schools, VA: Compensation and Classification Study

Evergreen Solutions was retained by Charlottesville City Schools (Division) to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study. The Division’s goal was to have a thorough classification and compensation study utilizing accepted practices in the management and design of compensation systems. The study’s objectives were: to attract and retain qualified employees; provide equitable salaries for all classifications of employees of the Division; ensure positions performing similar work with essentially the same level of complexity, responsibility, and knowledge, skills, and abilities are classified together; and provide the Division with a salary structure that enables the Division to maintain a competitive position with other comparable school divisions, private sector, and employers within the same geographic area. In the end, Evergreen provided recommendations for alternatives to the Division’s pay plans, revisions of policies and procedures, updated salary structure to allow for appropriate compensation, rectified compression/equity issues along with a total compensation comparison, and employee progression.
