Early Return to Work Program

The Early Return-to-Work program is a proactive way for The School District to help an injured worker stay or return to productive and safe work as soon as physically possible. This program, with proper implementation, can benefit all parties involved. The employee is responsible for active participation in the program and the school/supervisor is responsible for implementation and monitoring of the program outcome.

The School District and Supervisors will work in conjunction with the authorized treating physician to obtain physical limitations and develop a position to accommodate the specific restrictions. This may be done within one of the following modifications: part-time employment, temporary jobs, alternative tasks, job sharing, jobs in other departments, transitioning through different jobs and job modifications.

The School District understands the value of the contributions of all employees; thus, every effort will be made to accommodate physical restrictions. Administrators, supervisors and medical providers will work in conjunction with the injured worker to find suitable work until regular duties are resumed. Once a First Report of Injury is submitted, the return to work coordinator will contact the injured worker to discuss their participation in the Early Return-To-Work program.
