Release Time for Personal or Professional Development

Regular full-time employees may be granted release time during his/her normal working hours in order to enroll in one Pratt Community College course which will advance the employee professionally or personally, providing that the employee's supervisor have given his/her approval. Supervisors are encouraged to accommodate employees in their efforts without sacrificing the department's efficiency. Therefore, the supervisor may request that the employee adjust their work schedule to assure that the department's work is completed. If such an adjustment is necessary, compensatory time for hours worked above and beyond the normal work week of 40 hours (not including release time) will be granted.
