The school division recognizes that due to the disruptions to personal and work schedules related to the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees are not able to take time off.

In recognition that employees may not be able to take time off for the immediate foreseeable future, the suspension will be extended until February 28, 2021. Continue reading
As a reminder, Summer Phase 2 begins on Monday, July 6. During this phase, our 12-month employees who have been teleworking will begin to transition back to their workspaces. The expectation is that all staff will be working back on site by July 20 (15 work days prior to the return of the teaching staff). Please contact your supervisor to discuss what your balance of in person vs. telecommuting work will be as you transition back to the office. This will vary by position.
Throughout the summer, just like during the school year, all “regular” employees are paid at the end of each month, regardless of the type of work performed. (Any ACPS employee who uses Kronos is a “regular” employee.)
Payment for extra work will be deposited separately from the July and August direct deposits for your regular monthly salary. Continue reading

It’s an honor to report that our School Board, in their meeting this afternoon, approved the addition of Juneteenth to our annual holiday schedule.
Juneteenth is a national celebration of a General Order that took effect in 1865 in Texas. This order mandated equality between slaves and slaveowners in the last slave-holding state in the union. Since then, Juneteenth has been celebrated as the end of the government sanction of slavery. Continue reading
