No longer having to negotiate with unions about the process of laying employees off, the Muskego-Norway School Board on Monday threw out seniority as the single factor ruling layoffs in favor of a more flexible approach.
Seniority will play a part, but administrators can now also look at other factors such as skill sets and performance, according to the addition to the employee handbook the board approved.
In a related discussion, the board is working toward establishing rules about job sharing.
The district already allows job sharing -in fact, two teachers currently share one third-grade classroom. The proposed language would establish job-sharing rules such as formally giving the district the power to stop a job-share if it doesn't seem to be in the best interests of students. The job-sharing option also would only be available to existing staff, not anyone just being hired.
The proposed job-sharing rules will come up for a vote at the board's Feb. 20 meeting.
