Employee Leave & Absences

Understanding Employee Leaves of Absence

All full-time employees will earn five days of local leave and five days of state personal leave each school year, depending on your hire date within the school year. Please Note: Employees hired after the start of the school year will receive a lower number of days depending on total contract days for the remainder of the year. Employees can use local leave days and state personal level days for any reason following approval from your principal/supervisor.

Please refer to the information and instructions below for requesting Maternity Leave, Extended Sick Leave, Temporary Disability, or days from the Sick Leave Bank. Please contact the HR Department if you need to be absent for more than five consecutive days due to illness, surgery, or temporary disability.
