  2. Administrative Policy
    The Attendance Incentive policy shall be administered according to the following administrative policy provisions:

    1. Funds recouped for "no pay" days, based on average salary, shall be distributed equally to those employees paid on education support professionals salary schedules whose sick leave, annual leave, or no pay days during the contract year total four (4) to six (6) when rounded upward.  These funds will be supplemented by an annual contribution equivalent to a 0.5 percent increase contribution of the cost of the education support professionals salary schedule.
    2. These funds shall be distributed according to the following requirements:
      1. Employees must complete a full contract year to be eligible.
      2. Only those employees eligible for fringe benefits can be the recipients of this program.
      3. Payment will be made on the regular July check based upon "no pay" days used from July through June.
      4. Payment of available funds to eligible employees shall be prorated according to the number of hours worked per day.
      5. The use of vacation days is not calculated for the Attendance Incentive.
      6. The following method will be used for calculating the dollar value of this incentive for each eligible employee:
        1. Employees will be assigned a point value based on the total number of absences:
          Four (4) absences        5.5 points
          Five (5) absences        3.0 points
          Six (6) absences      1.5 points
        2. Total funds available shall be divided by the total points earned, which shall result in a dollar value per point.
