Inclement Weather and School Closings, Delays, and Early Dismissals
How to Find Out If Schools and Offices Are Closed
When the district closes or delays opening, employees who, due to the critical nature of their job functions, are considered directly responsible for the safe opening or closing of schools (including charter and contract schools) must report as scheduled. These include the following staff members:
The CEO may also designate other employees as essential; for 2014-15, these staff members will be notified of their designation by December 1. All other personnel are considered non-essential and are not required to report to work when schools and offices are closed.
Given the circumstances of school and office closures, delays and early dismissals, essential and non-essential personnel may request liberal leave if liberal leave is in effect. Liberal leave is a situation in which employees may use accumulated vacation leave, personal leave, or compensatory time, without making the normal, advance-notice request of their supervisor. Department heads may grant time without pay to an employee who has no paid leave available for use.
