Policy 3.1.7 - Salary Plan

The monthly and annual salaries or hourly rates of pay from state or county funds for full and part-time personnel shall be established by the President within a line item budget and as set forth in the College’s Salary Plan (“Plan”). The Plan will take into account provisions and criteria for salary determination, requirements for annual salary review and establishment of salary formulas, ranges or schedules.

The President’s salary will be established in accordance with the state salary schedule. The Board of Trustees has the responsibility of setting and adjusting the county salary of the President. Any adjustment to the line item covering the President’s salary must, as is the case with all line items, meet the approval of the County Commissioners and the North Carolina Community College System.

Salary increases shall not be granted except on July 1 of the fiscal year unless a position change necessitates such action or unless the State authorizes such action. Basic salary increments will be provided for all full-time employees based on guidelines established by the State Board of Community Colleges and the North Carolina General Assembly.

Basic salary increments may be provided for all part-time employees each year based on premises similar to those outlined above; however, local autonomy shall be the procedure or philosophy under which such salaries are determined. Salary increments for part-time personnel will not necessarily match or follow those provided for full-time personnel.
