1.1. The Board will consider approving a waiver of the provision on DED (LOCAL): COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS: VACATIONS AND HOLIDAYS necessary for the District to allow for the extension of the use of earned vacation days.
Funding Source/Clarification: CFISD local policy DED (LOCAL) currently requires employees to use vacation days earned by June 30 in one school year or fiscal year by the end of December in the following school year. Due to the COVID-19 virus, employees did not request vacation during the spring and summer months. As such, department supervisors are receiving numerous requests for approval of vacation days before the end of December to avoid the loss of the accumulated days. The multiple requests in a short period creates a potential hardship for departments. This agenda item allows the administration to extend the date for the use of vacation days earned by June 30, 2020 to July 31, 2021.
