COVID-19 Campus Update

As public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 continue to grow, Community College of Philadelphia has made the careful decision to move coursework to online or other remote alternatives, beginning March 30 through the end of the spring semester, and to keep Main Campus and its Regional Centers closed through at least May 6, 2020. All courses remain suspended through March 30, 2020. Students will receive details on coursework from individual instructors. Faculty and staff will be issued guidance by supervisors. At this time, the commencement ceremony for spring 2020 is postponed. The College will continue to update you via email, web updates and text alerts as this situation evolves during the closure. During this time, please follow all CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus and remaining healthy, including hygiene recommendations, social distancing practices and remaining home when you are sick.

  • Any additional such leave taken, if more than a half day, should be taken as personal leave or vacation time. 

Jury Duty and Court Appearances

Jury duty, court appearances in response to valid subpoenas, and time used when an administrator is a party to a court action is non-chargeable against any paid time.

Compensatory Time

Compensatory leave is available to administrative employees for time worked under the following conditions:

  • Time worked on a weekend, holiday, during period of time the College is officially closed, or if work involves an extraordinary number of assigned work hours.
  • Compensatory time is available to administrators in Grade I through Grade VI.
  • Compensatory time must be approved in advance of working the extra hours by the immediate supervisor.  The appropriate vice president and immediate supervisor shall approve the scheduled use of compensatory time.
  • Such time should be on the basis of one hour of time off for one hour worked and will not be cashable.
  • The supervisor must approve the time frame for using the compensatory time.  Compensatory time normally cannot be carried over to the next appointment year.

Vacation Accrual

Vacation days should accrue on a monthly basis.  Time may be used as it accrues.  Individuals must be in a payroll status for a full month to receive accrual for the month worked.  For each full month worked, an administrative employee receives 2 vacation days (except for the month of June; 1 vacation day accrues for June).  Up to 46 days of accrued vacation time may be carried from one appointment year to the subsequent year.
