Request For Remote Work is an agreement for members and staff that clearly defines the expectations and responsibilities for employees who work from home. It may also define who is eligible to work from home, the process for requesting work from home privileges, as well as the approval process.

  1. The (ECMS) request for a remote option will not negatively impact the student to adult ratios needed to safely support the ongoing of the Milestone School student and staff wellness and engagement.
