Administrative Adjustments Fiscal year 2014-2015


Fiscal Year 2015 is the first year for the Board’s policy on Principles of Equity.  As authorized by policy DEA​ (local), compression/leveling adjustments and individual/unique needs adjustments are requested to ensure fairness in administrative compensation and maintain competitiveness as an employer.  Generically known as administrative adjustments, these adjustments have also been known as “Rules of Engagement” and were later referred to as “Rules of Equity”.

Compression/Leveling Adjustments  

Incumbent administrators are reviewed within their district-wide family of job titles (i.e. Associate Deans for instructional areas, Executive Deans for instructional areas, Librarian IV’s, Directors of Facilities Services).  Incumbents’ salaries are benchmarked against their job family peers in terms of length of time the job has been held and relative “clustering” of salaries.  In circumstances wherein an incumbent’s salary has fallen outside of “clustering” within similar positions because of market-driven new hire salaries or because of organizational realignments that have raised salaries at other locations, a salary adjustment may be requested.  The college presidents, the vice chancellors, the associate vice chancellor of students, the provost of LeCroy Center, and the director of board relations acting as a committee will jointly conduct the review process that produces these recommendations.  These adjustments may range from 3 percent to 10 percent.

Individual/Unique Needs Adjustments are driven by a job change (promotion and new title) or an expansion of duties.  Individually, these adjustmetns may range from 5 percent to 10 percent.
