LEAVES OF ABSENCE (Tenured Teachers)

Board Policy

The Public Schools may grant a tenured teacher a leave of absence for sufficient reasons. No leave shall be granted for reasons other than those specifically stated in the Policies and Procedures Manual or the Negotiated Agreement.

Leaves are granted for a period of up to one year only; any extension must have approval of the Public Schools.

The State Retirement System has a policy related to the amount of time a teacher on leave may remain in this System and the need for State approval prior to the beginning date of the leave of absence. Personnel requesting leave should check this carefully as they file requests for leave.
