Evaluation of the Unified Compensation and Classification Plan.
Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL. Office of Educational Accountability.
The Unified Classification and Compensation Plan of the Dade County (Florida) Public Schools consists of four interdependent activities that include: (1) developing and maintaining accurate job descriptions, (2) conducting evaluations that recommend job worth and grade, (3) developing and maintaining rates of compensation for job values, and (4) maintaining equitability in the system. In the evaluation of these four areas serious problems were identified: job descriptions were incomplete; inappropriate factors were used to determine job worth; the grade-to-compensation conversion was not reasonable; and the administrative and maintenance activities did not keep the system current and equitable. The reasons for these problems are outlined and the report concludes that the system was flawed at its inception, had high inflation rates, was understaffed, and did not follow important procedureal requirements. The report recommends replacement of the system over a 9-month period and provides nine interim recommendations. Included are five appendixes and a bibliography. (MD)
