The purpose of the Classified Sick Leave Bank is to help alleviate hardship caused by absence from work necessitated by catastrophic illness, life threatening accident, mental illness requiring hospitalization, or a life threatening condition (excluding natural processes, pregnancy, elective surgery, and chronic conditions of a non life threatening nature and job related accidents covered under Workmen’s Compensation). The bank is not intended to cover short-term disabilities or injuries.
Any full time classified employee may participate in the CSLB after they have been employed continuously for one year, and have the accumulated number of sick days for donation. Each new member will be required to donate two (2) days of their accumulated sick leave to the CSLB.
No. The Sick Leave Bank days you donate will remain in this district.
The open enrollment for the 2015-2016 school year will close on Friday, 10/30/15
No, once you join you are a member for as long as you are employed by this school district.
To apply for a grant, you must meet the following criteria:
Members may be granted up to 30 days or 6 weeks absence over a five-year period.
Classified employees requesting grants from the CSLB need to submit requests to the CSLB Committee Chairman and include the following information with their request:
Elective surgery should be postponed until school is not in session and will be treated as a non life-threatening situation.
A member of the CSLB may request days from the bank when they have used all of their sick leave days and must miss work due to the extended illness, accident, or chronic condition of a family member. (A family member includes spouses, siblings, parents, children, son/daughter-in-law, brother/sister-in-law, father/mother-in-law, grandparents, and grandchildren.) The request must be accompanied by a doctor’s letter as to the condition of the family member. A maximum of 7 days, out of the 30 possible days for which can be given every five years, may be used for the condition of a family member.
No staff may donate sick leave days to the sick leave bank to which they can not belong; (i.e., classified cannot donate to certified, certified cannot donate to classified, etc.)
A classified member of the bank, or a classified staff non-member, is highly encouraged to donate any remaining sick leave days to the CSLB upon leaving the district at anytime during the school year, or upon retirement. This not only helps the bank to remain solvent but also contributes to the number of days available for another member in time of need. Donations of sick leave days, however, cannot be made directly to any individual within the district. Donations (outside of the annual membership drive) from a non-member are a donation only and do not make the person a member of the bank. A Donation Form is available upon request and must be submitted to the CSLB Committee Chairman.
The CSLB Committee is composed of three classified employees and one administrator.
It should be emphasized that the function of the CSLB Committee is threefold:
When it is necessary to assess additional days from the CSLB members to keep the bank solvent, new members enrolling that school year are exempt from adding additional days to the BANK.
The CSLB Committee realizes that you may have many questions about the Sick Leave Bank. We have attempted here to answer the questions we feel you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact a sick leave bank committee member if you have any further questions.
