Prince George County Public Schools, VA: Compensation and Classification Study

Evergreen was hired by Prince George County Public Schools (PGCPS) to perform a review of the Division’s current classification and compensation structure for 900 full-time teaching and support staff. Evergreen consultants performed the following tasks for the compensation component of the study: reviewed current scales with recommendations for decompression and step differentiation; examined options to appropriately compensate staff for extra duty assignments (“stipends”); provided a recommendation for policy on placing new employees on our salary scales; reviewed all current employees for proper placement on our scales as per education and years of service at each level of employment; reviewed current methodology for employee longevity; and provided recommendations for any and all methods to attract, retain, and reward staff. For the classification component of the study, Evergreen: reviewed position descriptions for all employees within the current classification system; reviewed and recommended changes as necessary to the proper designation of exempt/non-exempt status of positions with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); reviewed and suggested enhancements to the current requirements for each position including education, experience, certification and other related material; provided a recommendation for policy on promotion/self-demotion of employees within the school division; and reviewed of current types of employment contracts/agreements.
