Agenda Item 6.02 – Approval of the 2019-21 Negotiated Agreement with the Police Officers Association of the Clark County School District The Clark County School District (CCSD)
Board of School Trustees unanimously approved a memorandum of agreement with the Police Officers Association of the Clark County School District (POA) covering the 2019-21 school years pending the ratification from the members of the POA.
The agreement includes:
- A 3% adjustment to the salary tables to increase the salaries of all employees.
- A 6.9% salary increase for employees placed in a position of more responsibility by the Chief of Police and pursuant to CCSD policies. An example will be if a normal officer is asked to be a K-9 handler or a training officer.
- A 4% increase in both years in CCSD’s contribution to monthly health insurance premiums.
Agenda Item 3.01 – Focus: 2024
Trustees received a report on the five-year strategic plan, Focus:2024, efforts to reduce the general fund impact caused by safety concerns resulting in injury or damage, increase the number of completed safety assessments, and decrease the number of worker’s compensation claims with five or more days away from work.
The measure will be closely monitored and modified to continue to address the primary causes of loss that can be attributed to safety issues. The Worker’s Compensation staff has developed a new Transitional Return to Work program to decrease the number of employees that miss five or more days of work after a work-related injury. Currently 18% of all claims have five or more days away from work. The new Transitional Return to Work program aims to reduce the amount to the five-year goal of 15%.
Agenda Item 6.04 – EthicsPoint Incident Management System
The Board of School Trustees approved the purchase of EthicsPoint, an incident management software system and hotline, that will allow employees to easily and confidentially report any issues or instances of misconduct. The EthicsPoint system is designed for employees to report any possible violations of CCSD policies and regulations or other concerns that they may have within the District. With the use of the EthicsPoint system, employees will have the ability to file confidential and anonymous
reports via the telephone or the Internet.
