Here, if you are hiring a part time person, the contract very
clearly specifies that.
I once worked a .3 position which was three half days. The
salary was pro-rated by giving me 30% of the appropriate line
on the salary schedule.
I am not sure what 3 classes a week might be.
A 10% position? 15?
One thing that I would suggest - - be sure you are being fair
with that. When I was working half days, they crammed 5
classes into my half day while the full time people were
fitting in 6 with a lunch and planning. That kind of thing
makes part time people mad.
Also, if these three classes a week are three different
courses - planning time should be paid for all three. So,
three classes a week is really more like 6 periods a week.
I think as long as you are up front about exactly what the
position is, what the pay is, and as long as you schedule it
fairly keeping in mind the planning load as well as the class
load - - - - everything should be fine.
