In September, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors approved a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for all staff. MPS has now outlined procedures to submit proof of vaccination and accommodation requests.
Employees should access Employee Self-Service by navigating to the MPS homepage at mpsmke.com, clicking “Staff” on the blue bar at the top of the page, then selecting “Self Service.” Step-by-step instructions to submit proof of vaccination or request an accommodation, along with Frequently Asked Questions, can be found on the vaccination information webpage.
When requesting a medical/disability or religious accommodation, an employee must complete and submit the medical/disability accommodation request form or the religious accommodation request form through Employee Self-Service. Exempt individuals will be required to take part in COVID-19 testing twice per week. New employees will be required to submit proof of full vaccination upon hire or be approved for a religious or medical accommodation.
Proof of COVID-19 vaccination must be provided and accommodation requests must be approved by November 1, 2021. Any questions regarding the proof of vaccination process can be sent to COVIDVax@milwaukee.k12.wi.us. Questions regarding the accommodation process can be sent to COVIDAccomm@milwaukee.k12.wi.us.
Employees are encouraged to submit proof of vaccination or accommodation requests as soon as possible to ensure processing by November 1, 2021. For more information, visit the Staff COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate FAQ on the Employee Relations web page on mConnect at https://mpsmke.com/staffvax.
