3047 - Vacation and Holidays

#3047 - Vacations & Holidays


The Piute County School Board is aware that vacations and holidays for the employees of the school district are rejuvenating and bring a deeper commitment from employees to their particular jobs when they return. The board is also aware that vacations and holidays can be overdone to the extent of bringing detriment to the school district as a whole. For the above two reasons the board has adopted the following guidelines for vacation and holiday leave for its twelve month employees.

Policy Statements:

For the first ten years of service to the school district, each twelve month employee is entitled to 10 days of paid vacation at the discretion of their principal or supervisor. These ​employees will accrue 12 days of leave when the school district is on a 5 day school week calendar.

For each year of service after ten years, each employee is entitled to one additional day of paid vacation to a maximum of 16 days.

After six months, vacation time will begin to be prorated at one day of vacation leave per month worked and he/she will be allotted the regular personal leave as per district policy.

Unused vacation days will be paid out at the end of each fiscal year at the rate of $100/day. Restrictions for vacation leave usage will be the same as personal leave as specified in policy #2047 paragraphs 3.A. and 3.B.

Twelve month employees will also receive 12 days off for holidays. Usually, work must continue when school is in session, but these days may be taken at another time at the discretion of the principal or supervisor.

A vacation request form must be filled out and approved by the principal or superintendent before vacation days are taken.
