Dual Track - Recognition Plan
The St. Charles City-County Library District shall offer a promotion plan to recognize professional level employees by raising salaries to the next higher track upon the completion of an additional education program.
The intent of the Dual Track - Recognition Plan is to reward outstanding employees who decide to complete extensive personal and professional development. Development may include, but shall not be limited to, an additional degree in any subject area for librarian generalists. For librarian specialists, managers, and other professionals, the additional degree must be in an area of specialization directly relating to their current position.
Application to the Dual Track - Recognition Plan will be reviewed by an admission committee consisting of the Director, Deputy Director, and Human Resources Coordinator. It is the responsibility of the admission committee to insure the following requirements are satisfied before admission is granted:
For Librarian Generalists: completion of a second Masters degree, a 6 year post-graduate program, or a doctoral degree in any area of specialization.
For Librarian Specialists/Managers: completion of a second Masters degree, a 6 year post-graduate program, or a doctoral degree in management or an area of specialization that directly relates to their current position.
For Other Professional Staff: completion of a masters or doctoral degree in an area of specialization that directly relates to their current positions.
Implementation of Plan
Due to the impact of promotions on the budget, the following guidelines have been established:
Upon employment, newly hired professional employees may be recognized for a completed educational program above the requirement for the position if the education directly relates to the position for which they were hired, and if it meets 2 and 3 in the Criteria section above.
