Sec. 34A-405.2. Staffing levels.
(a) No hiring or appointment of any person in any position by the Board, the general superintendent, any other officer or employee of the Board, or any local school council shall be made or entered into unless it is consistent with the Financial Plan and Budget in effect and the staffing plan approved by the Authority under this Section. The hiring or appointment of any person shall not be binding on the Board unless and until it is in compliance with this Section.
(b) The Board shall submit to the Authority for approval by the Authority a staffing plan for the upcoming school year at the same time as the submission of the Budget, except that the staffing plan for the fiscal year ending in 1994 shall be submitted to the Authority within 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1993. The staffing plan shall be accompanied by a cost analysis and such other information as the Authority may require. The Authority may adopt, and from time to time amend, regulations to implement this Section and may prescribe standards, procedures, and forms for submission of the staffing plan.
(c) The Authority shall approve the staffing plan if, in its judgment, the information required to be submitted is complete and the staffing plan is consistent with the Budget and Financial Plan in effect. Otherwise, the Authority shall reject the staffing plan; in the event of rejection, the Authority shall prescribe a procedure and standards for revision of the staffing plan. The Authority shall act on the staffing plan at the same time as the approval of the Budget, except that the staffing plan for the fiscal year ending in 1994 shall be acted upon at the same time as approval of the Financial Plan for that fiscal year.
(d) The Board shall report to the Authority, at such times and in such manner as the Authority may direct, concerning the Board's compliance with each staffing plan. The Authority may review the Board's operations, obtaining budgetary data and financial statements, may require the Board to produce reports, and shall have access to any other information in the possession of the Board that it deems relevant. The Authority may issue recommendations or directives within its powers to the Board to assure compliance with the staffing plan. The Board shall produce such budgetary data, financial statements, reports, and other information and shall comply with such directives.
(e) After approval of each staffing plan, the Board shall regularly reexamine the estimates on which it was based and revise them as necessary. The Board shall promptly notify the Authority of any material change in the estimates in the staffing plan. The Board may submit to the Authority, or the Authority may require the Board to submit, modifications to the staffing plan based upon revised revenue or expenditure estimates or for any other good reason. The Authority shall approve or reject each modified staffing plan pursuant to subsection (c) of this Section.
