In emergency cases, the District considers teleworking - remote working, working from home or from a non-District site - to be a viable alternative work arrangement where employee, job and supervisor characteristics best suited to such an arrangement. Teleworking is a work alternative that may be appropriate for some employees and some jobs. It is not an entitlement; it is not a District-wide benefit, and it in no way changes the terms and conditions of employment with the District. Either an employee or a supervisor can suggest teleworking as a possible work arrangement. The District, at its sole discretion, may determine that some positions are not eligible for teleworking based on the job responsibilities. Learn more...
