Article 4 – Alternate Work Schedule to Take Educational Courses

An employee may request an alternate work schedule in order to take a for-credit course at an accredited institution of higher education, or another professional course carrying continuing education units per semester (Fall, Spring and Summer/Winter Sessions) during the work day. For the purposes of this Article, an alternate work schedule may include: a variable daily schedule that revolves around a fixed set of core hours, which may vary by employee; a pre-defined start time during which the employee will commence their work day; and for non- exempt staff, a work day that remains for a specific number of hours, not including a meal break, during which the employee must be at work, and a meal break of at least thirty (30) consecutive minutes. Any such request and agreement shall be in writing, and shall not be denied arbitrarily.
