Staff calendars for the 2021-22 school year are now published on the Time and Attendance Documentation web page (under “Timekeepers”). Please use the published Kronos calendars for guidance on your schedule rather than what you see on your future timecard, as timecards do not always show holidays and non-work days until the actual work week.
Dear ACPS Employees,
The new Virginia Overtime Wage Act is effective July 1, 2021. There are a few significant changes as to how ACPS will manage overtime in order to comply with the new law:
- Compensatory time leave can no longer be accrued in lieu of overtime under the new statute for most positions. Continue reading
As you know, due to the pandemic, ACPS was unable to implement salary increases in 2020. In advance of the upcoming July 1 salary adjustments, we want to make sure you are aware of the following:
- The school board approved a 4% salary increase for classified employees and a 5.2% salary increase for employees on the Teacher Scale, effective July 1. Continue reading

You may remember the leave programs we rolled out last spring 2020 under legislation known as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). This mandated two kinds of leave: Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and Emergency Expanded FMLA (EEFMLA).
