Leave, Disability & Workers Compensation

Sick Leave Bank

The Sick Leave Bank (SLB) is a voluntary pool of local leave days for a full-time District employee whose documented health condition extends beyond his or her own accumulated state and local leave.


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


An 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 sick 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 sick leave.


To be eligible to apply for SLB leave, an employee must participate in the SLB, 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 health condition for at least two consecutive workdays.

Family Medical Leave Act

FMLA requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to eligible employees for the following reasons:

  • For incapacity due to pregnancy, prenatal medical care or child birth;
  • To care for the employee’s child after birth, or placement for adoption or foster care;
  • To care for the employee’s spouse, son or daughter, or parent, who has a serious health condition; or
  • For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee’s job.


As a requirement for FMLA, employees must be employed with the district at least 12 months prior to taking medical leave.
