You get summer off! That allows for so much time to start-up a business, relax and travel, or just be a kid again and game!
Most people are off summer with pay. this is BEST thing about HISD
The best thing is that because I am a teacher, I get a lot of paid time off. The worst thing is that it is difficult to take other time off outside of the allotted days because of the best thing.
I like my 5 weeks of paid vacation plus more.
There are different vacations based on the amount of time you work which your pay is directly connected to as well. There are ten, eleven and twelve month employees but will escrow ten and eleven month pay to stretch over the vacation period so that you will continue to receive a paycheck during your time off.
Allowances given each September but you get PLENTY off days with school holidays.
Obvious teacher vacation holidays plus 10 days that rolled over year to year and could accumulate.
10 days of sick leave is all teachers are entitle to. If days are not taken, they'll not roll over to the next year.
As a teacher, summer and extended holidays: Spring Break, Summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas
