DENISON ISD DEPARTMENTS
ACADEMIC COMP DAYS
October 9 and January 15 of the 2023-24 school year have been designated as the academic comp days. To be eligible to have a paid day of employment you must have attended at least six hours of approved staff development for each comp day; therefore, each employee will need to accumulate 12 hours of Comp Time for the 2023-24 school year. You must have attended training 'on your own time'. Sessions held after school hours, on weekends, on school holidays, or during the summer after contracts end are eligible to be considered for comp time. If you are paid for your time, you cannot count the training as comp time.
