Part Time Seniority

November 3, 2008

Question
My school had one full time and one part time position within my department. Last year when enrollment increased, a new part time position was created. Next year when enrollment numbers decline and this position is eliminated, who would maintain the part time position? Would it be based on seniority at the school site or seniority with the district? – Anonymous
