GCL Policy - Professional Staff Schedules and Calendars

Code: GCL


Work Year

The working year for the teaching staff will be set forth on the school calendar adopted by the Board.  The number of teaching days will conform with state requirements for the number of instructional days.  Additional staff days are a matter of instructional program needs as well as a condition of employment.   

Although staff members are expected to be on official duty only for the teacher-employment year, the Board anticipates that they will work such additional days as are necessary before or after school or during school recess periods to carry out the responsibilities of their positions. 

The yearly schedule of all administrative personnel employed on a 12-month basis includes all week-days of the year with the exception of individual vacation periods. 

Working Hours

In general, the Board expects its certified staff, including both teachers and administrators, to observe an eight-hour working day. 

Teachers will arrive at their posts sufficiently in advance of students and will remain after the school day to meet with individual students, parents, and faculty committees, and to carry out other professional responsibilities. 

Administrators and supervisory personnel are expected to observe a daily schedule consistent with the hours that the central office is open, extending this by the time required to discharge the responsibilities of their positions.  Schedules during the summer may be shortened as deemed appropriate by the superintendent of schools.
