Personnel Committee

The Personnel Committee (PRS) assists in the formation of policies and procedures related to employment at PACT -- including hiring, interviewing, compensation, staff development, mediation and maintaining of records that are in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act and all other laws relating to employment in the state of Minnesota. They also develop qualification requirements for the hiring of staff, produce and maintain the Employee Handbook, and help to facilitate clear communication of PACT Charter School’s expectations. They also ensure accurate job descriptions, approve and recommend to the Board with regard to staffing needs and recommend an annual budget related to staffing needs.

Personnel Committee Membership

The Personnel Committee is an elected committee that interacts with other committees including the PACT School Board. Membership is 5-7 members consisting of elected parents. The Executive Director is a non-voting member and serves as an advisor.

Parent members are elected to overlapping two-year terms through public elections. A parent member may be removed for non-attendance of three or more consecutive meetings. The Board may appoint members if vacancies occur.
