School Visitation

The University encourages staff employees to participate in their children's school-related activities. 

As provided in the Illinois School Visitation Rights Act, staff employees with children in primary or secondary school are eligible for eight (8) hours of unpaid leave for school visitation after six (6) months of employment and the exhaustion of accrued vacation and personal holiday time. 

Benefits-eligible employees may elect to use accrued vacation or personal holiday time for school visitation consistent with University policy.
