It’s important to the District that employees have a good work/life balance and to have the opportunity to “refresh” without worry about income. Therefore, SVVSD allows for holidays, breaks and paid time off.
Classified, Professional/Technical, and Certified employees shall be eligible to participate in one of two voluntary Sick Leave Banks that allows employees to donate a requisite portion of their paid time off into a Sick Leave Bank that is available to assist employees who are eligible under the program. This program provides salary and benefits continuation for eligible employees in the event of a personal extended illness or injury which renders the member incapable of working.
Eligible employees may join as a newly hired employee or during Benefits Open Enrollment with contribution(s) from their paid leave hours in the amount equal to the number of hours worked per day. Time off for a recovery period may be requested if:
Certified (Licensed) Employees
Classified, Professional/Technical Employees
