Master Schedule Preferences
Published on March 11, 2019 by Travis Sharkey
So we are in the process of trying to put together the master block schedule for this coming year. The first thing we need from all of you to make this happen as quickly as possible is your preferred vacation months. Everyone gets 3 weeks of vacation (3 blocks with 1 vacation week each).
Things you need to know ahead of time:
1. You are not guaranteed to get your preferred vacation months.
-We will do our best to accommodate everyone but often there is no way to accommodate everything. In particular, many people every year shoot to have vacation time during the holiday months and we cannot accommodate everyone. If need be, we will randomly select who will get vacation during these blocks.
2. You are not guaranteed to have your vacation during a certain week you are shooting for during your designated block.
As a result we need 2 things from you all as soon as possible. Please provide us your top 5 choices for vacation months in order of preference and any reasoning why you want/need that block. The reason why is critical as those with significant reasons for requesting that month will take preference over those who do not provide any reason.
To give us your preferences please go to Master Preferences and submit the vacation preference request form from the drag and drop menu as well as the reasons for you preferences.
You have until March 20th to get these in. If you don’t have them in by then your vacation months are up to the needs of the department/schedule. Don’t be that person. Get your request in. To be as fair as possible to everyone there will be absolutely no exceptions on being late with these requests.
