Dinwiddie County Public Schools, VA: Comprehensive Compensation and Classification Plan

Evergreen Solutions was engaged with the Dinwiddie County Public Schools to develop a Comprehensive Classification and Compensation Plan that allowed the Division to: attract and retain qualified employees; ensure positions performing similar work with essentially the same level of complexity, responsibility, and knowledge, skills, and abilities are classified together; provide salaries commensurate with assigned duties; provide recognizable compensation growth; and maintain a competitive position with other comparable school divisions, entities and private employers within the same geographic areas.  Evergreen conducted interviews and/or job audits as appropriate in order to update job descriptions to uniformly reflect the distinguishing characteristics, essential job functions, minimum qualifications (education/experience and knowledge/skills/abilities), working conditions (physical demands, work environment, and travel requirements), and certification/licenses/registrations requirements for classification and identified Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) status (exempt/non-exempt) of each position.  In addition, Evergreen reviewed the current compensation plan (salary grade levels and steps) to understand current challenges; worked with the Division’s Senior Leadership team to identify comparable labor markets including private and public sector employers; developed and conducted a comprehensive compensation survey to include stipends (Instructional and coaching) and degree supplements; and made recommendations for updating the Division’s Compensation and Classification Plans.
