Below, you will find the LPSS Policy on Sick Leave and a Quick Facts sheet on each of the different leaves and the forms needed for application.
Full-time twelve (12) month employees shall be granted sick leave in accordance with the following schedule.
Less than 3 years: 12 days annually (1 day for each month worked)
3 years but less than 10 years: 15 days annually (1.25 days for each month worked)
10 or more years: 18 days annually (1.5 days for each month worked)
Only time accrued as an employee with full-time 12-month status shall be considered when awarding days from this schedule.
Such leave, when not used, shall be allowed to accumulate to the credit of the employee without limitation. However, upon initial employment, an employee employed by the Board shall not be allowed any sick leave until he or she reports for duty and actually performs work.
The minimum of ten (10) days of sick leave for a nine-, ten-, or eleven-month employee shall be based on the employee beginning work at the beginning of the school year. In the case of an employee beginning work in the first month of the school year, ten days sick leave shall be allowed. If an employee begins work in the second month of the school year, nine days of sick leave shall be allowed. If an employee begins work in the third month of the school year, eight days of sick leave shall be allowed; and the number of days of sick leave shall continue to be prorated for an employee who begins work until the eighth month of the school year, when only three days of sick leave shall be allowed. The Superintendent shall be responsible for developing and maintaining pertinent regulations and procedures governing sick leave.
