Extended Sick Leave

  • Extended Sick Leave

    Extended sick leave is available to classroom teachers and media specialists who require substitutes if they are absent due to their own personal illness or injury in excess of their accumulated sick leave and available vacation leave.  In order to be eligible, the employee must be in a permanent full- or part-time position.  Those qualifying are allowed extended sick leave up to 20 workdays throughout the regular term of employment.

    Employees on extended sick leave receive full salary less the required substitute deduction.  The deduction is mandatory whether or not a substitute is employed.

    To request extended sick leave, the employee must submitted a letter and supporting documentation requesting the leave to the Human Resource Services Department.
