The school calendar, as adopted by the Board, will establish the school recess periods and holidays for all professional staff members employed on a school-year basis.
Except as holidays have been declared for the school district or vacation days have been scheduled, all professional staff members employed on a 12-month basis (260 work days per year) will be expected to work during the recess periods of the school year.
All professional staff members employed on a 12-month basis will receive a vacation during the school year according to the following schedule:
- From 1 to 4 years of employment, an employee will receive 20 days vacation.
- After 5 years of employment, an employee will receive 25 days vacation.
All requests for vacation will be submitted to the superintendent for approval. Vacations will be allowed provided they do not hinder the operation of the schools.
