Twelve-month employees report to work up to two hours late but no later than 9:20 a.m. Food service workers are to report to work no later than 9:00 a.m. All employees normally beginning their day after 9:20 a.m. are to report to work on time.

*Designated emergency personnel will report to work on time.

This means that on a day that schools have a delayed opening, ten and eleven-month employees are to report to work two hours late, which will coincide with a delayed opening to the school day.  Food service workers are to report no later than 9:00 a.m. in order to prepare breakfast and lunch.  If they are uncomfortable with the condition of the roads for traveling or have other personal reasons not to report to work on time, they should notify their immediate supervisor. 

Twelve-month employees are provided administrative leave for up to two hours to arrive at work, but no later than 9:20 a.m.  Liberal leave is in effect if additional time is needed beyond the two hours.  Any twelve-month employee who starts their normal workday after 9:20 a.m. will report to work on time. 

Designated emergency personnel within the maintenance and operations areas are to report to work on time.  If they are uncomfortable with the condition of the roads for traveling or have other personal reasons not to report to work on time, they should notify their immediate supervisor at the beginning of their normal workday. 

*Designated emergency personnel will receive 2 1/2 times their normal hourly rate of pay for the period of administrative leave granted to other employees. 

Twelve-month employees who have requested leave (annual or sick) prior to the delayed opening or early dismissal of staff will be charged the leave (annual or sick, as appropriate) for the time they had requested; they are not eligible for administrative leave under these circumstances.   Administrative leave is granted for up to two hours to provide time for safe travel to or from work for twelve-month employees.

Pursuant to all three negotiated agreements, the following language is provided.  If schools are closed for inclement weather and ten and eleven-month employees are not reporting, then exempt, non-essential, twelve-month employees may choose to telecommute (work from home) on those days in lieu of taking leave by contacting in writing their immediate supervisor no less than 30 minutes prior to the  normal work reporting time. Upon completion of the work day, the employee shall submit written confirmation of the hours worked by indicating both the work day start and completion times, and a brief summary of the nature of the work accomplished. A copy of this documentation must be submitted to the employee’s immediate supervisor, as appropriate.  The employee may be required to present evidence of work accomplished during telecommuting time.
