The work day for licensed employees shall begin each day of the school year at a time established by the Master Contract. Licensed employees who are employed only during the academic year shall have the same work day as other licensed employees. "Day" is defined as one work day regardless of full-time or part-time status of an employee.

Licensed employees shall be in their assigned school building during the work day. Advance approval to be absent from the work site school building must be obtained from the principal whenever the licensed employees must leave the school building during the work day.

The building principal or immediate supervisor is authorized to make changes in the work day in order to facilitate the education program. These changes shall be reported to the superintendent.

The work day outlined in this policy is a minimum work day. Nothing in this policy prohibits licensed employees from working additional hours outside the work day.

The requirements stated in the Master Contract between employees in that certified collective bargaining unit and the board regarding work day of such employees shall be followed.
