Sick Leave Bank
One of the valuable benefits negotiated in our Meet and Confer Document is the Sick Leave Bank for teachers and nurses. Maintained by KEA, the Sick Leave Bank provides donated Sick Leave days to teachers or nurses in circumstances of catastrophic illness or injury.
Once you have joined the Sick Leave Bank - by contributing 8 hours of Sick Leave - you are eligible to access it at any time in the future when all available resources, e.g. sick day/personal day hours and deductible absences, have been used. (If you would like to donate an additional day, you may do so.) Certified employees can only donate a day of sick leave during the designated Sick Leave Bank Donation Windows:
- 1st SLB Donation Window: 1st contract day to September 30th
- 2nd SLB Donation Window: January 1st to February 15th
Many thanks to our members who serve on the Sick Leave Bank Committee: Liz Valentine (Estrella) and Jen Griffin (Mariposa). Contact either of them if you have any questions about contributing to or accessing the bank.
