Dear Mr. Smith:

This is in response to your question concerning W.Va. Code ?18A-4-8h.

Specifically, you ask whether or not a full-time PAC Home School Coordinator who has also worked part-time in the past as a Substitute Secretary prior to the effective date of the Code section may continue to do so.

W.Va. Code ?18A-4-8h states the following:

Upon the effective date of this section, no school service personnel shall be permitted to become employed in more than one regular full-day position, nor more than two one-half day positions at the same time: Provided, That nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit a school service personnel from holding an extracurricular assignment or assignments, as provided in section sixteen [?18A-4-16] of this article, or summer positions, as provided in section thirty-nine [?18-5-39], article five, chapter eighteen of this code, nor from performing extra-duty assignments, as provided in section eight-b [?18A-4-8b] of this article, in addition to his or her regular position. (1996, c. 111.)

Employees who have been employed in more than one full-day position or two one-half day positions prior to the effective date of this Code section are grandfathered in. However, if the full-time PAC Home School Coordinator has not maintained her employment as a one-half day Substitute Secretary since before the effective date of the section then she would not qualify to be grandfathered in. Mr. W. Graham Smith, Jr.
