One-Week District Closure Protocol
The Atlanta Public Schools will enjoy alternative summer work hours beginning June 22 through July 17. This includes a complete closure of the District during the week of June 29 - July 3; as well as three four-day workweeks:
June 22-25 (closed Friday, June 26)
July 7-10 (closed Monday, July 6)
July 13-16 (closed Friday, July 17)
All employees who are on duty during this time will have a holiday on July 3rd (the Fourth falls on a Saturday) and will be required to use four annual leave days that cover June 29, 30, July 1, and 2. An employee who does not have enough annual leave to cover this duration may use personal leave in the event of an annual leave shortage. Employees are encouraged to monitor their annual leave accrual to ensure that they have at least four days of annual leave available for the week of June 29 to July 3.
Employees who do not have enough annual or personal leave will see a deduction in their paychecks for these days* on July 15, 2020 and July 31, 2020.
*Employees hired after March 1, 2020, who do not have enough annual or personal leave to cover these days will be loaned leave and will not see their paychecks reduced. However, if employees leave the district before they have repaid the borrowed leave, their final paycheck will be reduced for the number of days owed.
