TIME OFF FROM WORK Vacation (includes off track)
DCSD offers vacation time to eligible employees in order to provide opportunity for rest, recreation, travel or for pursuing other personal interests away from work. Employees are encouraged to take all their earned vacation each year in order to rejuvenate their energies.
We realize from time to time employees must take care of personal or emergency matters that cannot be handled outside of scheduled work. Such occasions may be home maintenance, family events, mortgage closings and other personal matters.
In general, vacation requests should be scheduled in advance with your supervisor’s approval. On occasion, requests may be denied due to organizational or student needs. Vacation time is not used in the computation of overtime. An employee’s accrued balance will follow the employee if transferring to a position eligible for vacation days based on the provisions of the new plan. Employees, who leave their employment with DCSD or move to a position not eligible for vacation, will waive any remaining vacation balances upon the effective date of separation or transfer. Vacation time does not carry forward to the next fiscal year. Employees forfeit any vacation time that is not taken within the fiscal year it was accrued. Vacation time may be taken in advance of accrual within the same fiscal year. Any vacation time taken in advance of being accrued will be deducted from an employee’s final pay. See Appendices A, B and C for more information on vacation specific to your position classification.
