The list of standard holidays recognized by FCPS can be viewed here.


Types of Leave

Contracted full-time and part-time employees accrue sick, personal, and/or annual paid leave days. 


Extended Absences

All employees who have worked for FCPS for at least 12 months may be eligible for an absence qualified under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Some employees may also qualify for a longer unpaid Leave of Absence (LOA). You can view more information about these extended absences here. 


Disability Benefits

The Integrated Disability Management (IDM) Program consists of workers compensation, short-term disability, and long-term disability. As part of the IDM program, Liberty Mutual/Lincoln Financial oversees employee disability benefits, release, and return to work (when appropriate). Information about these programs can be found here.

Growing your family?

FCPS offers an Expecting Parents Workshop, which provides information on how to prepare and plan for pregnancy and maternity or paternity-related leaves as well as additional resources that are available through your health plan.
