Staff Personal Leave
Unless otherwise provided by negotiated agreement, employees shall be entitled to four paid personal leave days per school year. Such leave for part-time employees shall be prorated in accordance with the time worked. Substitute teachers are not entitled to this leave.
Personal leave shall not accumulate from year to year; however, at the end of each school year, each employee who has not used his or her full entitlement of personal leave may elect to:
Have such unused leave added to the employee’s accrued sick leave at the beginning of the next school year; or
Receive payment from the district for unused personal days as follows:
For licensed employees, $50.00 per unused personal leave day.
For non-licensed employees, $45.00 per unused personal day.
In the event an employee does not notify the district in writing on or before September 15 of his or her desire to receive payment for unused personal days, the unused personal days shall be added to the employee’s accrued sick leave.
