The board shall determine the amount of vacation, holidays and personal leave that will be allowed on an annual basis for non-certified staff.


It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent to make a recommendation to the board annually on vacation and personal leave for non-certified staff.


Non-certified full-time staff who have worked one year, unless the non-certified staff member's contract indicates otherwise, will receive 10 days of vacation each year.  Non-certified full-time staff who have worked 5 continuous years will receive 15 days of vacation each year.  Non-certified full-time staff who leave prior to the end of their contract will receive their pro rata share of vacation for the year.


The vacation may be taken any time during the school year when the vacation will not disrupt the school district operations.  The employee must submit a vacation request to the superintendent, who shall be responsible for determining whether the request will disrupt the school district operation.


Non-certified staff who work twelve months a year will be allowed six paid holidays, if the holidays fall on a regular working day.  The six holidays shall be New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.  Non-certified staff, whether full-time or part-time, shall have time off in concert with the school calendar.


Full-time regular non-certified staff who work 12 months a year will be allowed a maximum of three days of personal leave to accomplish personal business that cannot be conducted outside the work day.  The employee must, whenever possible, submit a personal leave request, stating the reason for the leave,five days prior to the leave day.  This leave may be denied if it falls on the day before or the day after a holiday or vacation, it falls on a special day when services would be necessary, it would cause undue interruption to the education program or to a program demanding the employee's services to the department, or other reasons deemed relevant by the superintendent.  It shall be within the discretion of the superintendent to grant personal leave.


Non-certified staff will be paid only for the hours they would have been scheduled for the day.  Vacation shall not be accrued from year to year without a prior arrangement with the superintendent.
