The Board of Education recognizes the need for all administrative employees to have a vacation from their regular assigned positions. All contracted administrative employees are eligible to participate in the administrator vacation program. The Board delegates to the District Administration the responsibility for developing and administering the administrator vacation policy.
Administrative Policy The following administrative policy provisions shall be used for administering the administrator vacation policy:
Administrators will receive twenty (20) vacation days at the beginning of each contract year (frontloaded on July 1).
Administrators earn these days pro rata during the contract year.
Administrators hired after July 1 will receive a prorated number of vacation days that are available to be used on the day that the administrator’s contract begins (frontloaded). If an administrator resigns or is terminated prior to the end of the contract year, the vacation pay-out amount will be prorated based on the percentage of contract worked, and:
The employee will be compensated, at his/her daily rate (base pay only), for all earned vacation leave not used; or
The employee will be required to reimburse the District, at his/her daily rate (base pay only), for any unearned vacation leave taken.
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, and August with approval of the immediate supervisor. After August 31, the vacation allowance may not exceed the days accrued for the current year. Any earned vacation over twenty (20) days not used prior to September 1 will be forfeited.
Generally, vacation leave is to be scheduled during off-peak work seasons. Employees must submit vacation leave requests, with reasonable advance notice, to their supervisor for approval.
School administrator vacation days are to be used when school is not in session (non-student days). Year-Round Education (YRE) administrators are exempted from this requirement.
School administrators, not including YRE administrators, may use up to five (5) of their vacation days when school is in session provided that the vacation leave is pre-approved by a supervisor. Taking three (3) or more vacation days in a row when school is in session requires approval fourteen (14) days in advance by the appropriate Administrator of Schools.
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.
Administrative Policy The following administrative policy provisions shall be used for administering the vacation policy:
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.
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.
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.
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.)
