Q11. Can an educator leave early or come late on a given day?
A11. 100 % of the educators are ladies. Sometimes a small job requires an extra half hour at home and she can then manage school + home. It is important that she does both. To help her facilitate attending both duties, an educator may come one hour late or leave an hour early on a given day of the month ONLY after intimation & permission of the concerned supervisor. We call this the point system. An educator may use a maximum of 2 such points is a month.
