Trustees approve HR job description
A job description for the Human Resources director position was approved on Thursday night by Churchill County School District Trustees during regularly scheduled meeting.
Trustees approved by a 4-0 vote — Greg Koenig, Carmen Schank and Clay Hendrix were absent — the job description at a salary range dependent on experience and education.
“I think that experience counts for a heck of a lot,” said Steve Nunn, board vice-president.
The salary figures are still to be determined by trustees, according to Superintendent Dr. Sandra Sheldon, who also noted the position opening is due to be posted by the end of this week.
The position was vacated by Diane Peters at the end of the 2012-13 school year.
An option selected for qualifications read as follows: “Any combination of training, education and experience that would provide the required knowledge and abilities. Three years of progressively responsible human resources experience or an equivalent and education in the human resources field in preferred.”
