Central Human Resources will start accepting requests for duplicates February 15th

The following sections of the Staff Handbook have been updated:

  • Staff Handbook 5.4:  This update is memorializing our established practice of having the option to terminate an employee who fails to report to work or to notify supervisors for three consecutive days of scheduled work.
  • Staff Handbook 10.4: This update is to align our Staff Handbook with the Board of Trustees Policy 405.4 which was updated in March 2018 to remove the 30-day notice requirement for at-will terminations.  The update to Staff Handbook 10.4 reflects this updated Board policy by removing the 30-day notice requirement.
