The Superintendent or designee shall manage the maintenance of
personnel records in accordance with State and federal law and School
Board policy. Records, as determined by the Superintendent, are
retained for all employment applicants, employees, and former employees
given the need for the District to document employment-related
decisions, evaluate program and staff effectiveness, and comply with
government recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Personnel records
shall be maintained in the District’s administrative office, under the
Superintendent’s direct supervision.
An employee will be given access to his or her personnel records
according to State law and guidelines developed by the Superintendent.
The Superintendent or designee shall manage a process for responding
to inquiries by a prospective employer concerning a current or former
employee’s job performance. The Superintendent shall execute the
requirements in the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act whenever
another school district asks for a reference concerning an applicant who
is or was a District employee and was the subject of a report made by a
District employee to DCFS, unless the employee and Superintendent have
been informed by DCFS that the allegations were unfounded.
