Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I feel my classified position should be upgraded?

Please refer to the Bargaining Unit Agreement for the position in question. The agreement outlines the process in detail. Complete and sign the Position Questionnaire (available on the HR Forms page on the district intranet) before submitting to Human Resources. For questions related to reclassification, please contact Luis Flores at (520) 225-6015.

Where can I find a job description?

See the job descriptions web page. You can search job descriptions by job code, position title, pay grade, or bargaining unit.

I need to take an extended period of time off. What are my options?

The district provides paid time off in the form of sick leave and personal leave. Twelve-month employees also receive vacation. If you run out of your paid time and you need more time off, you may qualify for one of several types of unpaid leaves of absence. You must request an unpaid leave of absence by completing the Request for Leave of Absence form.

If I complete a Short-Term Disability claim form, do I have to complete a Request for Leave of Absence, too?

Yes, if you do not have enough sick leave to cover your absences. The Short-Term Disability claim is an insurance that district employees can elect to buy. The Leave of Absence protects your job status, and in some cases, your insurance.

How can I receive sick bank donations?

All of the Bargaining Unit Agreements outline the qualifications for the Medical Leave Assistance Program. In short, in order to qualify for the program, you must provide medical documentation that indicates that you are unable to work for four or more weeks. You must also run out of your paid time.
