In an effort to standardize the holiday schedule which is the same as last year, the Spring Break and the Summer Break will be replaced with *three (3) floating holidays. These floating holidays will be taken anytime within the 2012-2013 fiscal year with mutual agreement with supervisor.
* 3 Floating Holidays:

At any time, the President or Cabinet members may determine for the welfare of the College, certain departments may need to work during a Holiday. Campus Safety will maintain a normal schedule during Holidays.
In order to provide services to our current/prospective students and visitors during the College’s long Christmas break from December 20, 2012 – January 2, 2013, essential administrative offices will maintain limited operations.
Tusculum College will convert to a reduced administrative schedule over the Christmas break. Essential campus offices relating to the arrival of students or visitors will maintain minimal staffing for five hours to eight hours per day. The following offices are identified as essential administrative operations for this policy: Admissions, Business Office, Financial Aid, Institutional Advancement, Student Affairs, and Athletics.
Campus Safety will remain on a normal working schedule and Holiday Pay will be granted for only the days the College is closed.
The following offices are identified as crucial offices to new student arrivals and are to remain on-call through this period: Registrar and Campus Life.
All other offices will operate as designated by the Cabinet member.
There will be a special payment arrangement for Christmas break for hourly and salary non-exempt employees in essential and crucial offices only. For each five – eight hour day worked during this period, the staff member will receive one full day (eight hours) of compensatory time. Compensated time will be determined jointly between the employee and his/her supervisor. There will be no more than two compensatory days taken before the start of the holiday period. These may be taken in November or December only. No more than one compensatory day may be taken in January after the College immediately reopens in the New Year.
To be eligible for Holiday Pay (or floating day off), a full-time staff employee must work the scheduled day before and the scheduled day after the holiday. Employees on a leave of absence, part-time, contracted or temporary, are not eligible to receive Holiday Pay.
***Since Graduate and Professional Studies often operates on a different schedule than the Residential College, steps will be taken to assure that offices remain open to best serve the needs of students. Staff schedules will be adjusted accordingly. Compensated time will be determined jointly by the employee and his/her supervisor following the same guidelines as Christmas break.
