Men of Promise FlyerThe Men of Promise Conference will be held Oct. 6 at the Zions Technology Center, 159 W. Center Street in Midvale for students in grades 9-12. If you are looking for an opportunity in growing leadership within our young males, particularly, the young males of color, the Black Success Center (through the Black Chamber of Commerce) is focused on programming to develop and connect this part of our future.

The Men of Promise (MOP) conference inspires students by speaking to their hearts and providing them with professional experiences designed to shift their life trajectories. The conference’s approach encourages students to change their path by shifting their habits and disciplines, thus helping them to help themselves…to achieve goals. Another aspect of the conference was to connect students with role models to help them develop their VISION, DISCIPLINE, and CHARACTER.

All NEW teachers received an invitation to the New Teacher Induction (NTI) CANVAS course via your district email. This course will provide you with important information regarding your employment. The expectation was that you complete this course prior to the start of school for students. If you have not completed this required training, please complete it as soon as possible. Please feel free to contact the HR Department if you have questions or concerns.

Please take note of the following clarification on the difference between "Grade Transmittal Days" and "Professional Development Days."

Grade Transmittal Days are scheduled three times per year (Oct. 21, Jan. 17, March 27) as required in District Policy D207 - Calendar Development. These days occur each year in the Jordan School District. Payment for these days is built into the base teacher salary. Students do not attend. In-person work by teachers is not required; however, schools are open and teachers may use time on this day for finalizing and submitting grades.

Professional Development Days are three days throughout the year (Sept. 16, Nov. 4, April 21) where the Board of Education and District Administration have converted a student instructional day to a professional development day, as allowed by Utah Code 53F-2-102(d). These days are authorized on a year-to-year basis. These days are included in the 187 days of the standard teacher contract. Students do not attend. Principals may use up to three hours of each day for required professional development activities. The remainder of the contract day is to be used by teachers for planning and preparation.

The level and teacher calendars have been updated to clarify this change:

DP324 NEG - Sick Leave- Licensed and DP326 NEG - Sick Leave- Education Support Professionals

Welcome to the 2022-2023 contract year! As an annual reminder, in accordance with DP326 NEG H. 1. and 2. and DP324 NEG H. 1. and 2., participation in the Employee-Funded Sick Leave Bank requires an employee to annually donate one day of accumulated annual leave into the Sick Leave Bank. The Employee-Funded Sick Leave Bank is not intended to be used for in-and-out absences, elective medical procedures or other medical care that could be scheduled during non-contract time.

Each year, employees wishing to opt out of participation in the sick bank must annually complete the appropriate online form in Employee Access no later than September 1 for current employees and October 1 for first-year licensed employees, including administrators. This opt out request must be submitted annually. Prior to completion of this form, it is strongly encouraged to review all District Leave Policies.

Prior to completion of this form, it is strongly encouraged to review all District Leave Policies. 

  1. Log in to your Skyward Employee Access. (If you do not know your login and/or password, contact the Information Systems Help Desk at 801-567- 8737)
  2. Select “Task Manager” under the Jump to Other Dashboards widget. 
  3. Under “Task Processes” select “Sick Bank Opt Out.” 
  4. Open the Sick Bank Request form, enter information in all required fields and then click the “Save” button. 
  5. Click the “Next” button and enter Notes, as appropriate. 
  6. Click the “Next” button past Attachments; no attachments are requested. 
  7. Click the “Next” button until you reach the final step “Choose Next Task.” 

Click the “Submit Sick Leave Bank Opt Out” button to submit the Sick Bank Opt Out Request. An email will be sent to your District email account confirming the Sick Bank Opt Out submission. 

Sick Bank Opt Out Processing
Please note that the submission needs to be submitted by September 1 (current employees)/October 1 (for first year employees), but there will be a delay in removing the Sick Bank Donation from your time off, which returns your annual leave day to your available leave balances. 

Questions regarding Sick Bank should be directed to the HR Generalist at 801-567-8249. If you need additional assistance with the completion or submission of this form, contact the Administrative Assistant at your location or the HR Generalist. 

*Education Support Professionals who are considered ‘provisional’ as of July 1 and hourly employees are not eligible for sick bank benefits that year, therefore, a sick bank donation will not be deducted (if applicable). Please be aware that policies and eligibility requirements for Licensed (DP324 NEG) and Education Support Professionals (DP326 NEG) employees are different. These and other District policies are available for review at policy.jordandistrict.org.
