Employee Work Day

Minimum Hours of Work

Subject to School Board review, the Superintendent shall be authorized to establish daily time schedules for all classifications of employees. In setting such schedules, consideration must be given, but not limited to, evening and weekend responsibilities, wage and hour regulations, comparative schedules of employees in other school systems, and schedules established by other employees in the community that provide a generally accepted standard.


Employees classified as non-exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), who work more than 40 hours in a work week, are entitled to overtime pay at the rate of 1½ times the regular hourly rate. Overtime pay, approved by the appropriate director/supervisor, is allowed in some circumstances. Requests for approval must be processed prior to the overtime worked, except in the case of an emergency. The standard work week extends from 12:01 a.m. on Sunday until 12:00 midnight on the following Saturday. Overtime not authorized, but still performed, must be paid under the FLSA; however, such unauthorized overtime may be grounds for dismissal of the employee.

Timekeeping / Leave Tracking

All classified employees are to enter their time worked in RedRover.  Certificated employees are to schedule time-off in RedRover and arrange for a substitute where possible.  The purpose of our timekeeping system is to verify to the building principal/supervisor that you are present and at your assigned place for that day and your time is recorded and paid according to the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
