All full- and part-time classified employees working twelve months per year are eligible for paid vacation.
Employees working at least 44 weeks per year (10 months or 215 working days, including holidays) and at least 35 hours per week will not receive vacation benefits, but will be paid for time off during the winter and spring recesses. Those employees who began work before July 1, 1992 in this category will continue to receive paid vacation benefits under the provisions of the vacation policy in affect, prior to this change. For secretarial/clerical employees, vacation leave will be approved exclusively for winter and spring recess.
Vacation will be granted at the following rates:
Vacation will be earned on a biweekly basis starting with the first day of employment, and the years of service will be determined on the anniversary date of employment. Vacation may be taken as it is earned. Vacation requires preapproval by the employee's departmental assistant superintendent, manager, director, coordinator, or building principal.
Employees whose term of employment is twelve (12) months and earn vacation in one (1) fiscal year must use the earned vacation within the first six (6) months of the following fiscal year. Any vacation day earned but not taken within the 18th month period will be lost without compensation except for secretarial/clerical employees who may request a transfer of the excess time to their sick leave accrual by making a written request to the human resources department.
Employees whose term of employment is less than twelve months and who are eligible for the vacation benefit must take this earned vacation between the first and last day of their employment period; and such earned vacation may not be carried over from one employment term to another. Any vacation earned but not taken during the employment term will be lost without compensation, except for secretarial/clerical employees who may request the unused time to be transferred to their sick leave accrual by making a written request to the human resources department.
At the termination of employment, the employee will be compensated at the current rate of pay for any accumulated vacation earned but not taken.
