The Personnel Commission for the Monrovia Unified School District was established to administer a merit system for the classified employees as provided in Education Code Sections 45240-45320. The Merit System is based on this principle: employment and promotion on the basis of merit for the purpose of obtaining the highest efficiency and assuring the selection and retention of the best qualified persons in the service of the Monrovia Unified School District.
The Personnel Commission is responsible for recruitment, examination and selection activities, classification of positions, salary recommendations, disciplinary and dismissal appeal hearings, and the development and administration of Merit Rules. It is an independent body composed of three persons appointed for three-year staggered terms. One commissioner is selected by the Governing Board of Education; one commissioner is selected by the classified collective bargaining employee unit; and one commissioner is selected by the other two commissioners. Each commissioner serves a three-year term, with one commissioner's term expiring each year.
The Personnel Commission is a member of the California School Personnel Commissioners Association (CSPCA) and the Personnel Commissioners Association of Southern California (PCASC).
