Classification: (sometimes referred to as "Class"): A group of positions sufficiently similar in duties and responsibilities that the same descriptive title may be used to designate each position allocated to it: substantially the same requirements of education, experience, knowledge, and ability are demanded of incumbents: substantially the same tests of fitness may be used in choosing qualified appointees; and the same salary range may be applied with equity. A classification may consist of one or many positions, and may at times have no incumbents in it, but continue to exist for future use.
Class Title: A definite descriptive title or name applied to a class and to all positions of the class to be taken with the meaning set forth in the description of the class as embodied in the specifications, and to be as descriptive as possible of the duties and responsibilities.
Job Specification: A formal statement of the duties and responsibilities performed by the positions in the classification, illustrated by examples of typical tasks, and of the qualification requirements of the positions in the class.
Duty Statement: a list of the specific duties, work behaviors and responsibilities assigned to an individual position in a classification prepared by the department for review by the Personnel Commission for the purpose of conducting a classification/reclassification study or to be used by the Board of Education in establishing a new position. Note: When preparing duties statements, the job specification description should not be copied since it is intended as a general description of the entire job class, not the individual position.
