"The Merit System of Making appointments is in its essence as democratic and American as the common school system itself."
                                                                   Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States
The merit system is a method of personnel management which is designed to promote the efficiency and economy of the Bassett Unified School District classified workforce and the good of the public by providing for the selection and retention of employees, promotional opportunities, in-service training, and other related matters on the basis of merit, fitness, and the principle of “like pay for like work.”
