The fiscal year 2022 performance review process launched June 6, 2022, to evaluate performance for staff employees.

As part of the Comprehensive Leave Program, paid time off (PTO) hours are now front loaded for employees to use at the beginning of the fiscal year or on the start date for new hires. PTO balances up to 80 hours automatically transfer into the next fiscal year, but don't forget that any balances over 80 hours expire at the end of the fiscal year on Aug. 31, 2022. Please work with your supervisor to use your hours before they expire.
