1. "Length of Service" means the time elapsed since the first probationary appointment, except that when there is an interruption of service because of resignation or other termination, "length of service" means time elapsed since the latest probationary appointment.

2. "Character of Service," as it relates to the promotion of an employee to a position where there is an opening, means qualifications and past performance with the Board of Education. Qualifications are determined by interviews and tests. Past performance includes all evaluations and training courses and where applicable, tests, special skills, licenses, certificates and educational requirements attained before and during employment.

3. Applicants for promotion shall be granted an interview based on their written examination score. When a written examination is not required those applicants with the highest qualifications for the position shall be granted an interview.
