Regular duty hours for Central Office administrative and clerical employees will be from 8:00 – 5:00 Monday through Thursday and 8:00 – 4:30 Friday. Any variance from this standard workday schedule must be preapproved by an employee’s direct supervisor.
Principals will be responsible for setting campus staff hours of duty. The campus workday will consist of an eight-hour day and shall include a 30-minute lunch break. See Board Policy DEA (LEGAL) and DL (LEGAL)
A school calendar is adopted each year designating the work schedule and holidays for teachers and professional employees. Paraprofessional and auxiliary employees shall receive notification of the required duty days, holidays, and hours of work for their position on an annual basis.
If a Lubbock ISD employee must be absent from a scheduled workday, it is their responsibility to correctly and timely enter their required leave through the TEAMS Employee Service Center.
ANY EMPLOYEE ABSENCE FROM A SCHEDULED EIGHT-HOUR WORKDAY SHALL BE ENTERED INTO TEAMS AS EIGHT-HOURS.
This rule applies to Professional Development and GOALS days, inclement weather, and any other early releases due to Administrative discretion. The entered hours in Teams will always follow the scheduled time, not the actual hours worked for any particular day. Contact the Payroll Department for additional clarification or information regarding this rule.
