Personal Illness/Injury Leave   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

An employee shall notify the district of his/her need to be absent as soon as such need is known, so that substitute services may be secured as necessary. This notification shall include an estimate of the expected duration of absence. If the absence becomes longer than estimated, the employee shall so notify the district. If the duration of absence becomes shorter than estimated, the employee shall notify the district by not later than 3 p.m. of the day preceding the day on which he/she intends to return to work. If failure to so notify the district results in a substitute being secured, the cost of the substitute shall be deducted from the employee's pay.

Sick Leave Beyond 12 Days

Each year, regular classified employees shall be credited with 100 working days of paid sick leave, including those current-year and accumulated days for which the employee is entitled to full pay. This paid sick leave shall be exclusive of any other paid leave, holidays, vacation or compensatory time to which the employee may be entitled. When the current-year and accumulated days at full pay are exhausted, the remainder of the 100 days shall be compensated at 50 percent of the employee's regular salary. Any such days of leave not used during the year in which they are credited shall be forfeited and shall not accumulate from year to year.
