1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Board affirmed that a “management employee” under EERA must have significant responsibilities both for the formulation of district policies and the administration of district programs. Among the factors distinguishing a management employee from a non-management employee is the ability to waive or deviate from established policy, and the presence or absence of a relatively intimate relationship with a school district’s superintendent or governing board. Applying these principles, Board found 17 of 25 disputed classifications to be managerial, while the other 8 were found to be within the supervisor’s unit.
