Human Resources Announcements
"Use or Lose" Annual Leave Process
Employees are allowed to carry a maximum of 240 annual leave hours into the next leave year that begins January 12, 2014. Annual leave hours, which includes previously restored “use or lose” annual leave, above the 240-hour maximum are subject to forfeiture if not used by January 11, 2014. Sick leave balances have no maximum; all employees can carry an unlimited number of sick leave hours at any time. Please note that this policy does not apply to individuals who do not accrue annual leave, i.e. Washington Teacher’s Union ET-15 employees.
Under certain conditions, employees can request a “leave restoration” in order to retain leave hours (that exceed the 240-hour maximum) for use at a later date in 2014. You can obtain the leave restoration form and details here.
· December 10: Last day for employees to submit “leave restoration” requests to supervisor.

DCPS to Implement Employee Mandatory Drug and Alcohol Testing Program
As part of our mission to maintain safe schools for our students and employees—and as mandated by the Child and Youth, Safety and Health Omnibus Amendment Act of 2004 (CYSHA)—DCPS is implementing a Mandatory Drug and Alcohol Testing (MDAT) Program.
Under CYSHA, all employees in “safety-sensitive” positions – those with a significant degree of contact with students – must be subject to drug and alcohol testing. Employees in “safety-sensitive” positions will be subject to testing as of August 5, 2013. If you would like additional information regarding the MDAT program, please visit MDAT.
