The purpose of this policy is to provide technology center employees who are lactating with accomodations should they desire to express breast milk during the workday while separated from their newborn child.
The board of education shall provide any employee who is lactating reasonable paid break time each day to use a designated room for the purpose of maintaining milk supply and comfort. The break time may run concurrently with any break time, paid or unpaid, already provided to the employee.
The board shall make a reasonable effort to designate a private, secure and sanitary room or other location other than a toilet stall, where an employee can pump or express their milk or breastfeed their child. The designated area shall be a space where intrusion from co-workers, students and the public can be prevented, and one where an employee who is using this area can be shielded from view.
