*For eligible employees, whose work schedule includes their last workday of a week as Friday, the last day to use the 2023 Discretionary Day is Friday, December 22, 2023. For those whose last workday of a week is Saturday, the last day to use the 2023 Discretionary Day is Saturday, December 23, 2023. If you have questions, work with your supervisor or personnel office staff.

You can determine if you still have an available Discretionary Day by logging into the Employee Self Service Center located at https://kansas.gov/employee (click on the Self-Service icon located in the Featured Sites area). Once you are logged in, click on the View Leave Balances tile. If you see the words “Discretionary Day is Available” on your View Leave Balances page, you still have a Discretionary Day available (for non-Regent employees). 

A complete list of Executive Branch Holidays, including Discretionary Day usage dates, is located at https://admin.ks.gov/offices/personnel-services/holidays (Note: Multiple years are listed).

Check with your agency Personnel Office if you have questions.
