In order to serve the best interests of students and the educational program, the Governing Board authorizes the Superintendent or designee to assign certificated personnel to positions for which their preparation, certification, experience and aptitude qualify them.

(cf. 4112.21 - Interns)
(cf. 4112.22 - Staff Teaching Students of Limited English Proficiency)
(cf. 4112.23 - Special Education Staff)

Teachers may be assigned to any school within the district in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement.
Assignment to Courses/Classes
The Superintendent or designee shall assign teachers to courses based on the grade level and subject matter authorized by their credentials.
When there is no credential authorization requirement for teaching an elective course, the Superintendent or designee shall select the credentialed teacher whose knowledge and skills best prepare him/her to provide instruction in that subject.
Teachers who are assigned to teach core academic subjects shall meet the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) pertaining to qualifications of highly qualified teachers. (20 USC 6319, 7801; 5 CCR 6100-6126)
(cf. 4112.24 - Teacher Qualifications Under the No Child Left Behind Act)
The Superintendent or designee may assign a teacher, with his/her consent, to a position outside his/her credential authorization when specifically authorized by law or regulation, and in accordance with the local teaching assignment options described in the Commission on Teacher Credentialing's Administrator's Assignment Manual. Assignments made pursuant to Education Code 44256, 44258.2, and 44263 shall be annually approved by Board resolution. In such cases, the Superintendent or designee shall reference in district records the statute or regulation under which the assignment is authorized.
(cf. 3580 - District Records)
The Superintendent or designee shall periodically report to the Board on any teacher misassignments or vacancies, including the number and type of assignments made outside a teacher's credential authorization through a local teaching assignment option. Whenever district misassignments and vacancies are reviewed by the County Superintendent of Schools or Commission on Teacher Credentialing, as applicable, the Superintendent or designee shall report to the Board the results and shall provide recommendations for remedying any identified issues.
(cf. 1312.4 - Williams Uniform Complaint Procedures).
Equitable Distribution of Qualified Teachers
In order to ensure that highly qualified and experienced teachers are equitably distributed among district schools, including those with higher than average levels of low-income, minority, and/or academically underperforming students, the Superintendent or designee shall:
1. Verify that all teachers of core academic subjects possess the qualifications of highly qualified teachers as required by NCLB or develop immediate and long-term solutions for ensuring that all core academic classes will be taught by highly qualified teachers.
2. Not assign teachers with provisional internship permits, short-term staff permits, or credential waivers to schools that have 40 percent or higher poverty or are ranked in deciles 1-3 on the statewide Academic Performance Index.
3. Not place interns in high-poverty, low-performing schools in greater numbers than in schools with low poverty or higher academic achievement.
4. Compare teacher retention rates across district schools and develop strategies to recruit and retain experience and effective teachers in hard-to-staff schools.
