Employee Handbook 2021-2022


5.2 Scheduling Vacation

The District shall designate vacation periods by job title or work location during which employees may select their vacations. The designated periods shall provide each employee the opportunity to use his/her vacation. Employees shall be entitled to select their vacations during periods so designated in a manner which shall allow those with the greatest seniority first choice. Vacations will be permitted during the school year in accordance with this provision and the requirements of the school functions. Requests for vacation shall not be unreasonably denied.

The Employer agrees to provide each employee an opportunity to use all earned vacation credits annually and employees are encouraged to use vacation in extended periods of several days. This provision shall not, however, preclude variations in the use of vacation according to peculiar individual circumstances provided such variations shall be agreed to by the District.
