Sick Leave is one of your most valuable benefits. Benefits eligible employees of the Board of Education earn sick leave at the rate of approximately 1.25 days for every calendar month worked and can accumulate a maximum of 130 days.
As you know, sick leave pays your full salary if you must be out sick. But did you realize that accumulating sick leave can have other advantages now and in retirement? Accumulating Sick Leave can reduce your cost for disability insurance.
It can also mean money in your pocket at retirement. For those that participate in TRS, portions of unused accrued sick leave may be rolled into TRS retirement plans. For those who participate in PSERS, under certain circumstances, employees may apply for payment through the Attendance Incentive plan.
Be sure to request personal time off in advance
