Classified employees: part-time playground positions.
February 15, 2017
AB 670 adds part-time playground positions to the classified service. While some districts have bargained to include noon-duty aides as part of the classified service, most do not. Under the direction of the principal, a noon-duty aide relates to pupils in a supervisory capacity. The principal must be able to move a noon-duty aide to any position needed during the time they are at the school site. Once part of the classified service, union rules of seniority and job classification can become an obstacle to the mobility needed at the school. Based on the relationship with both the student and principal, the noon-duty aide should be a versatile position that meets the needs of students.
