arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Each full-time employee is entitled to 12 days' personal illness or injury leave of absence per fiscal year, with full pay. Full-time employees who serve less than a full fiscal year shall be granted a prorated share of the twelve 12 days' leave, and part-time employees shall be granted comparable sick leave in proportion to the time employed. (Education Code 45191)

Credit for sick leave does not have to be accrued before an employee takes a sick leave. Such leave may be taken at any time during the year. However, new employees shall not be entitled to more than six days of sick leave until they have completed six months of active service with the district.

Unused days of sick leave shall be accumulated from year to year without limitation.

The Governing Board shall establish regulations requiring proof of illness or injuries reported by employees and specifying procedures by which such verification shall be made. (Education Code 45191)

Upon request, employees who terminate their service to the district may have their accumulated sick leave transferred to their next district of employment. (Education Code 45202)

Sick Leave Beyond Twelve Days

After an employee has exhausted his/her sick leave, vacation, compensatory overtime and other available paid leave, he/she shall receive his/her regular salary minus the amount paid to a substitute employed to fill the position, for a period of five months or less.

After a permanent employee has exhausted all available sick leave, vacation, compensatory overtime and any other paid leave, he/she may be granted a leave of absence because of nonindustrial accident or illness for a period not to exceed six months. The Board may renew this leave for two additional six-month periods or for lesser periods. Total leave so allowed shall not exceed 18 months. (Education Code 45195)
