The university follows the District of Columbia Parental Leave Act which provides an employee who is a parent, guardian, custodian, aunt, uncle, grandparent, or spouse or domestic partner of any of the aforementioned, with a total of 24 hours of unpaid leave during any 12 month period to attend or participate in school-related events for a qualified child. A school-related event is an activity sponsored by either a school or an associated organization such as a parent-teacher association. D.C. Parental Leave is unpaid leave however you may elect to use accrued annual time for these school related events. The D.C. Parental Leave Poster (PDF) was created by the DC Office of Human Rights and provides highlights of DC Parental Leave.
