Contribute to the Vacation Donation Bank program by Aug. 15

The Vacation Donation Bank program, which allows staff to contribute vacation days they don’t expect to use to a bank within their school or unit, is open for donations through Aug. 15. Donated time will be available for use by employees taking unpaid medical leave during the 2018-19 fiscal year.

Staff employees who have successfully completed their 90-day orientation period and are in good standing (i.e. performance level of meets standards or better and are not or have not been in Positive Corrective Action in the past year) may donate days. Employees cannot give more than 50 percent of their vacation time. Once given, the days cannot be returned to the employee who donated the time.

From there, employees within a school or unit who are taking unpaid medical leave may apply to use up to 10 of the paid days off that have accumulated within that school or unit’s bank.

Donate vacation days or apply for donated time through the human resources website at
