Staff Leave Guidance

Staff employees will be granted leaves for illness, personal and emergency purposes, and professional purposes and other activities in keeping with the policies that follow. 
Sick leave is defined to include illness of the employee or serious illness requiring bedside or household attention by the employee for any member of the immediate-household and medical appointments. 
School Board Approval: The School Board may approve or disapprove the Sick Leave Bank annually.  If the Sick Leave Bank is disapproved, the Bank will remain active until all days have been used. 
In general, the Board grants three (3) basic types of leaves:  (1) short-term leaves, usually with pay, such as sick leave, personal leave, professional days, and jury duty leaves; (2) family and medical leave which may be short- or long-term depending upon the circumstances and may or may not be paid leave; and (3) long-term or extended health leaves and leaves for study and travel, usually without pay or with partial pay, such as extended health leave and other types of approved long-term leaves of absence.   
The Superintendent shall administer the granting of all leaves of absence and shall have the authority to approve short-term leaves of absence in accordance with established Board policy.  The employee may appeal such decisions to the Board.  All long-term (extended) leaves of absence shall require prior Board approval.
