  • Leaving for the summer? Some things to remember....

    Posted by HR on 6/22/2018

    The Carol Sheffey Parham Building and all AACPS schools and work locations will be closed on Fridays over the summer beginning July 6, 2018 and ending August 10, 2018.

    Employees must work their extended hours during the four-day summer work week, except if you have been given approval by your supervisor to take annual leave on Fridays.    

    Remember your Password

    All employees must abide by Board Policy and Regulation regarding Computer Ethics and Security (DI/409 and DI-RA/AR409). Employees who will be gone over the summer are expected to memorize their system password. Passwords should not be emailed or written down.
