Policies and Regulations

School Board of the City of Virginia Beach
Regulation 4-14.1


Job Share Agreements for Instructional Employees

This regulation shall set forth the parameters of job sharing agreements for instructional employees and the benefits provided to job share participants effective beginning in the 2006-2007 school year.

A. Participant Requirements

Each participant in a job share agreement must be a non-probationary employee. Therefore, only instructional personnel who have earned continuing contract status are eligible to participate in job share agreements.

Each participant must work fifty percent of the full-time hours of the position.

Each participant must fully participate in all building/departmental professional development activities.

B. Approval of Job Share Agreements

The principal/department director must give existing job share participants written approval/disapproval of the arrangement by March 15.

Employees must submit a written request for a new job share agreement to the principal/department director no later than February 1 for approval/disapproval before February 15. A request to job share may include the recommendation for a job share partner; however, the principal/department director will make the final decision on job share participation, and notify the Department of Human Resources of approval in writing by March 1.

Once approved, job share participants have seniority only among other job share participants within a building/department.

C. Benefits Provided to Job Share Participants

Job share participants will receive pro-rated leave benefits. Job share participants are eligible for pro-rated group health insurance.

Job share participants working fifty percent (50%) of the full-time hours are eligible for prorated Virginia Retirement System and group life insurance benefits beginning with the 2006-2007 school year. These benefits are not retroactive for job share participants prior to the 2006-2007 school year.
