Notify your principal as soon as
you know that you must take time off for any reason. Professional protocol allows for ten business days of notice to be given to
your supervisor prior to the personal day you intend to be absent. The granting of personal leave is subject to
obtaining an adequate substitute. Calls
should be made to your principal by 7:00 am when making a sick leave
request. You are required to fill out a
“Faulkton Area School Leave Request and Absence Report” found in staff mail
room and at each Colony attendance site for any absence from work.
All equipment and supplies are to
be requested on a purchase-order system using the program supplied by the
Business Office. Every attempt should be
made to calculate the number and type of supplies necessary for the next school
year by March 15th of the
current year. If additional supplies and
equipment are needed during the school year, teachers should make a request to
their principal and the request will be approved or disapproved based on budget
realities. Equipment and supplies that
are considered as Capital Expenditures will be requested by February 15th. It is important that teachers use
conservative measures in requesting purchases.
It is the goal of the District to have everything necessary for a
first-rate educational program based on Common Core Content Standards.
The telephones located in the
teacher workroom and coaches’ room cannot be used for sending long distance

business. Cell phones should be turned
off during the school day and used in emergency situations only. Students are to be excused from class to make
calls home for only emergencies and illnesses.
If your club or group desires to
