PDD & PHDs – Use Them Or Lose Them


Professional Development Days

All employees accumulate two Professional Development Days (PDD) during each fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Those days are separate from any other provision afforded under the contract. PDD days are to be used at the employee’s discretion and are to be requested and approved in the same manner as vacation and annual leave. For more information, see Article 13 of your contract.

Personal Holiday Days

All employees accrue one personal holiday per fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) after six months of state service. Authorization and usage of the leave must follow department policy. The personal holiday is credited to each employee on July 1 and must be used by June 30.
