Welcome to the Greenfield Union School District team, dedicated to providing the highest
quality education to all students. We are pleased to provide you with the District s Employee
Handbook, containing important information including how to find information, how to
communicate successfully, employee resources and references to Board Policies, regulations,
and procedures that will guide the way for employees to have a successful year and work
We believe we are all more effective when everyone understands their relationship to the total
organization and knows their rights and responsibilities. All of us are trustees of the public
confidence and stewards of the community's greatest assets, students, by dedicating ourselves
to performing efficiently and effectively.
Greenfield Union recognizes that the success of our students and programs hinges on effective
personnel. We desire to maintain safe and supportive working conditions that will retain and
attract highly qualified staff members who are dedicated to the education and welfare of our
students. The District's personnel policies and related regulations are designed to ensure a
supportive, positive climate. They are consistent with collective bargaining agreements and
conform to state and federal laws and regulations.
The information in this handbook is intended to provide direction to all employees. Many Board
Policies and District procedures have been abbreviated and summarized; therefore, the
handbook is not a substitute for official Board Policies, Administrative Regulations, or practices.
These policies and procedures can change from time to time. We encourage all staff to become
acquainted with the handbook and refer to it when you have questions. Suggestions for
additions and improvements to this handbook are welcome and may be sent to Luke Hogue,
Assistant Superintendent of Personnel.
Finally, whether you are a certificated employee, a classified employee, or an administrator,
you are vital to the educational process and to our Board-approved Mission that: " Greenfield is
a student-centered district dedicated to preparing each student for a life which is productive
academically, physically, socially, emotionally and economically."
Thank you for the services you provide to our students.
Luke Hogue, Assistant Superintendent of Personnel
