Sick Leave

Sick leave can be used because of illness, injury, FMLA, health care appointments, and death of an immediate family member.

It is important for employees to have access to sick leave in order to take care of their own health and well-being, as well as the health of their loved ones. Sick leave can provide the necessary time off to recover from illness or injury, attend medical appointments, or care for a family member who is ill.

This benefit allows employees to prioritize their health and the health of their family without having to worry about losing income or facing negative consequences at work.

Earning Sick Leave

Each full-time unclassified administrative or instructional staff member earns 15 days of sick leave per contract year.
