1D.3: Qualified Employees

The Board has stated that “the quality of the administrative staff and instructional faculty is central to the quality of the educational experience of the students” and committed “to employ and retain persons with the highest professional qualifications and continuously demonstrated ability." Sauk promotes excellence in staff by building into its hiring process several steps that allow scrutiny of the quality and qualification of potential employees:

The ICCB has established minimum qualifications for faculty, and Sauk’s full-time and adjunct faculty meet or exceed all requirements. Information regarding employee qualifications is stored in the HR Office and reported to the ICCB. The HR Office also maintains the annual performance evaluations for all employees.
