At the conclusion of the school year, teachers who have not utilized all of their personal days may carry over up to two (2) days into the next school year. The paid personal day is the first day what will be carried over into the next year if it has not been used. One of the personal days at partial salary deduction would be the second day considered for carryover. If the teacher has used their paid personal day, up to two unused personal days at partial salary deduction would be carried over. This means that a teacher might be able to access up to seven personal leave days in any given school year, if two had been carried over from the year previous. Note that if there is a break in employment for the teacher (e.g. the school year begins and the teacher is not on contract), personal leave days are not carried over.
Members also have the option of accessing a lengthy personal leave at full salary deduction, otherwise known as a general leave. If you are
considering this option, please contact the Local 38 office to discuss the process
and impact of this decision.
