    The District’s goal is for every employee to be at work 100% of the time.   The 2018-2019 target attendance rate is 96% or higher.


    Attendance Formula

    Worked Hours/Workable Hours - Protected hours

  • Workable Hours
    The number of days you are scheduled to work each year (refer to your Basis Calendar) X number of hours you are scheduled to work each day minus Paid Time Off.

    Paid Time Off
    Paid Time Off includes hours for Vacation, Holidays, Annual Physical and Bereavement.

    Protected Hours
    Protected hours are absences from work that are protected by State and/or Federal statutes. These statutes include: Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA); California Family Rights Act (CFRA); Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL); Paid Parental Leave (PPL); Jury Duty; Kin Care; and Personal Necessity (School Activities, Religious holidays, and some Court appearances).

    96% attendance is equivalent to about:

     10 unprotected absences for A Basis
       9 unprotected absences for E Basis
       8 unprotected absences for B Basis
       7 unprotected absences for C Basis
