Sick Leave Bank

The purpose of this Sick Leave Bank is to provide additional sick leave days to members of the Bank in the event of an unexpected critical illness, surgery, or a temporary disability due to an injury that requires extended hospitalization or home confinement of the employee. Days may be requested from the Bank only after the member has exhausted all accumulated Sick, Personal, and Vacation (when applicable) days.

Sick leave days from the Bank are days granted to a member who, through a catastrophic unexpected critical illness, surgery, or a temporary disability due to an injury, is unable to perform the duties of his/her position.

Unexpected critical illness, surgery, or a temporary disability due to an injury that requires extended hospitalization or home confinement of the Member’s immediate family (spouse, child or parent) will be considered on a limited and individual basis.  Approval for family situations will only be made if the employee is the only one who can take care of that family member. Days may be requested from the Bank only after the member has exhausted all accumulated Sick, Personal, and Vacation (when applicable) days.

Any employee who is eligible to join the Sick Leave Bank may do so by contributing two (2) days of earned local sick leave. An employee desiring to join during the current school year’s enrollment period must have a balance of at least three days of local leave.

The enrollment period will be August 1st through September 30th of each school year or thirty (30) days after initial employment.

Employees desiring to join the Bank shall complete the proper Authorization Form in the Human Resource Office. The application will be verified for employment eligibility by the Assistant Superintendent of Personnel and, upon approval, will be processed by payroll.
