QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Answers to Common Questions from the Field

Question:

For the Staff Position Collection, one of our staff members is employed for the school year but only works a few days per week. The snapshot date was a scheduled day-off for him (e.g., a Friday for a worker who is scheduled for Monday-Tuesday-Thursday). Should he be reported?

Answer:

Yes; the staff member must be employed on the snapshot date to be counted, regardless of whether or not he was actually at work that day; the same rules apply to staff who were sick or on vacation on the snapshot date.

For more FAQs relating to Staff Position, see the Staff Position Manual located on the Staff Position Resources page.
