DP344 – Vacation Schedule for Twelve-Month Personnel

  • Effective: 9/25/1979
  • Revision: 3/31/2015
  • Reviewed: 5/28/2013

  1. Board Directive
    The Board of Education recognizes the need for all 12-month employees to have a vacation from their regular assigned positions.  All personnel who are employed full-time on a 12-month basis are eligible to participate in the vacation program.  The Board delegates responsibility for administering the vacation policy to the District Administration.
  2. Administrative Policy
    The following administrative policy provisions shall be used for administering the vacation policy:

    1. All vacations will be determined from July 1 to June 30 of each contract year.  New employees will have vacation allowance prorated at the rate of .83 days per month and will be eligible to take such accrued vacation after the next June 1.  New employees must work ten (10) or more days in order to accrue any vacation allowance during the first month of employment.  No vacation time will be allowed before the vacation days have been earned.
    2. Vacation days may not be accumulated from one year to the next.  However, vacation days allowed for the current and/or previous year may be taken during June, July, August and September with approval of the immediate supervisor and department director.  After September 30, the vacation allowance may not exceed the days accrued for the current year.
    3. Vacations are to be scheduled at times that are best for the District and the employee.  Generally, vacations are to be scheduled during off-peak work seasons.  Any special considerations must be approved by the immediate supervisor.  Employees must present written vacation plans to the immediate supervisor for approval in advance.
    4. The length of vacation is figured on the number of years of continuous contract service in the District.  For purposes of computing movement on the vacation schedule, employees hired prior to January 1 will be credited with a full year's employment for the first contract year.  Those hired after January 1 will not receive vacation credit for the first year.  (Placement on the salary schedule has no relation to vacation allowance.)
