Job Assessment Tool

The Job Assessment Tool (JAT) has been shared with all classified employees. Your participation is strongly encouraged. The JAT is used to gather information about the current work you perform. You will be asked to give feedback on your role, responsibilities, and duties.

Evergreen solution will use the information provided in the JAT to recommend appropriate job titles and associated pay levels and ranges for the purpose of developing a revised or new job plan and job classification for HUSD.

The deadline for the JAT is April 19, 2024.


JAT Quick Start Guide

The JAT does not have to be completed in one sitting. You may utilize the SAVE feature on the bottom of each section. This will allow you to exit and return to the JAT as many times as you would like before the deadline.

If you have problems logging in, if your JAT has incorrect information or you need general assistance, you may email Kristy Colyer at or
