Does your work make it impossible for you to go on vacation during the school vacations? Or do you want to apply for leave due to special circumstances? Then you must request permission from the school director.
There are a number of strict conditions which are listed on the application form of the municipality of Amsterdam. The form must be submitted to the school director 6 weeks prior to the leave period in question. In case of more than 10 days leave, the director will submit the request to the school attendance officer.
