School Board Considers Flexible Schedules
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The state board of education has taken the first step toward approving a new policy that would restrict the way system employees use flexible work schedules.

School board members voted to have the policy evaluated by its review committee.

They will then discuss it at their August 6th work session and could approve it at its meeting later that month.

Chancellor Bradley Byrne said the policy would essentially prohibit system employees from using flextime to work on anything outside the system where they would receive pay or compensation.

The policy accompanies two of Governor Bob Riley's proposals that would restrict the amount of time public education employees can spend out of the office and prohibit them from holding elected public office.

Flextime has traditionally been used to describe employee schedules that are outside their normal 8-hour work shifts.

Board members also elected Birmingham businessman David Byers as vice president and named Randy McKinney of Gulf Shores as president pro tem.
