I have a conference with my son’s teacher on a day that I am scheduled to work. What do I do?

Any City employee who is a parent, guardian or grandparent having custody of one or more children in kindergarten or grades 1 through 12 or attending a licensed daycare facility shall be allowed up to forty hours each school year, not to exceed eight hours in any calendar month of the school year, without pay, to participate in activities of the school of their child. The employee must provide reasonable advance notice of the planned absence. The employee may be required to use vacation and or compensatory time off to cover the absence. 

The City may require the employee to provide documentation from the school as verification that the employee participated in school activities on a specific date and at a particular time. If both parents, guardians or grandparents having custody work for the agency at the same work site, only the first parent requesting will be entitled to leave under this provision.
