Catastrophic Sick Leave

The catastrophic sick leave bank (CSLB) is a voluntary pool of local leave days for a full-time District employee whose documented catastrophic health condition extends beyond his or her own accumulated state and local leave.

 

A maximum of 60 CSLB leave days may be granted in a school year.

 

Catastrophic illness or injury is a condition or combination of conditions that:

  1. Is life-threatening, requires 5 or more days of hospitalization or major medical treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation; and requires the services of a licensed healthcare provider throughout the period of the catastrophic leave; or


  2. Has totally physically incapacitated the individual from work; and requires the services of a licensed healthcare provider throughout the period of the catastrophic leave.


To be eligible to apply for CSLB leave, an employee must participate in the CSLB, must have used all available compensatory time and all available state, local, and/or vacation leave days, and must have been absent due to a documented catastrophic health condition for at least two consecutive workdays.
