CCPS Telework Program
Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is offering a telework option to eligible employees for the 2023-2024 school year. Upon approval, an employee’s telework status begins upon supervisor approval and ends in June 2024. Applications will be accepted between July 10 and Aug. 18. This will provide time for supervisor review and approval. The application will reopen in mid-September for the remainder of the school year.
The Office of Human Resources is overseeing the program for CCPS. All employees interested in applying to telework should review the training videos posted below.
A list of eligible CCPS positions that fall under either the EACC or AFSMCE negotiated agreement is linked below. Click on the Eligible Positions drop-down menu. The following is important information about the telework program.
Three types of telework arrangements are available for employees:
Recurrent telework: Telework which occurs on a regular, recurring basis at an alternate worksite (eligibility limited to some positions at the Jesse L. Starkey Administration Building).
Intermittent telework: Employee works regularly from their primary work site, but would telework for limited periods of time based on specific circumstances or job responsibilities that could be accommodated by teleworking.
Situational telework: Telework for an employee that is approved on a case-by-case basis, or that is not part of a regular telework schedule.
Eligible employees are required to follow all telework guidelines and complete an electronic application for manager/supervisor review.
The application will be linked below and will open 10 a.m., July 10. When completing the application, employees need to be sure they are choosing their current/correct supervisor name in the drop-down box so their application routes to the correct person for review. Employees should also not expect an immediate response from their supervisor. Employees requesting telework will receive an email notification of their telework approval or denial.
Approval or denial of any employee telework is at the discretion of their manager/supervisor and department chief. A manager/supervisor has the right to regularly review an employee’s telework agreement.
Employees with questions about the CCPS telework program should contact Shirlene Ogburn, supervisor of employee services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fill out the form indicating who your direct supervisor is, what department you work under and what type of telework you are requesting. You can also add any comments in comments box. Once the application is submitted you will get a confirmation email confirming the submission. You will also receive and email to let you know whether the application was approved or not approved.
Types of Telework:
- Recurrent — Limited to Starkey staff.
- Intermittent — Teleworking for a specified timeframe.
- Situational — Not a part of a regular telework schedule and requested based on a specific situation.
When a person who works under you submits an application, you will get a message through Teams asking you to approve the request. You can click on approve or reject to indicate your decision. There is also a comments box. Any comments you type will be relayed back to the applicant. As a direct supervisor, any comments you type will be relayed to the department head when it is time for them to approve or not approve the application.
Questions regarding the telework program should be directed to Shirlene Ogburn, Supervisor of Employee Services for CCPS, at email@example.com.
