It is recognized by the Board that no employee is exempt from jury duty and that leaves of absence for such duty must be granted.
- Only the regular salary may be received by an employee on jury duty.
- It is the responsibility of the employee to reimburse the District for jury duty pay when such payment is made directly to the employee. Failure to reimburse the District at the completion of the jury duty service will result in a full deduction equal to the number of contract days missed.
- An employee excused from jury duty after being summoned shall report for regular duty as soon as possible. Failure to report for duty will result in a deduction equal to that portion of a contract day missed. [A.R.S 21-236].
Jury duty is initially reported in iVisions using Earned Leave or Absent Part-Time Leave. The payroll office adjusts the leave from Earned Leave/Absent Part-Time Leave to Jury Duty Leave upon receiving proof of jury duty participation/attendance, issued by the courthouse. Part-time employees are only paid for the time they were scheduled to work for the day – not the time they actually spent at jury duty.
Employees on standby for jury duty are to report to work as usual. Teachers should schedule a substitute teacher for the date of jury duty. The substitute teacher is to provide instruction and/or assistance as directed by the Principal until the teacher departs for jury duty.
