200.01000 – In General
* * * OVERRULED by Stats. 2011, ch. 674 (A.B. 501), § 1, and Center Unified School District (2014) PERB Decision No. 2379, which provide that non-classified, non-certificated noon duty aides are included in EERA’s definition of “public school employee” even though the Education Code expressly excludes such employees from the definition of “classified service.” * * *
In Healdsburg Union High School District and Healdsburg Union School District/San Mateo City School District (1984) PERB Decision No. 375, PERB held that short-term employees have no representation rights under EERA because Education Code section 45103 excludes them from the classified service. Education Code section 45103 also excludes part-time playground positions from the classified service. When the Legislature granted classified status to employees in a part-time playground position who also hold another classified position in the same district, it maintained the exclusion for other part-time playground positions. EERA provides no guidance as to unit placement of employees who are neither certificated nor classified. For these reasons, noon-duty aides have no representation rights under EERA.
