GCRG Leaves and Absences (See GBRH)
Full-time employees will be credited with 10 days of paid leave on the first day of the fiscal year. Unused leave will be accumulated to a maximum of 60 days. The annual credit of 10 days will be first applied to employee absences. The maximum number of days available in any fiscal year is 70 days.
The paid leave may be used as sick leave, bereavement leave or personal leave.
Sick leave is available for the personal illness of the employee or the illness of the employee’s spouse, child, grandchild, parent or the parent or child of the employee’s spouse. The superintendent shall have the right to receive verification of any illness or disability.
Bereavement leave is paid leave in the event of the death of a member of the family covered by sick leave. Bereavement leave is limited to three days per occurrence. Bereavement leave will be deducted from available paid leave.
Personal leave is for the purpose of conducting personal activities that may not be completed outside the workday. Personal leave is not limited but will be deducted from paid leave allowed. Requests for personal leave must be given to the employee’s supervisor at least one week in advance of the period of leave.
If the employee leaves the employment of the district for any reason, no payment will be made for unused sick leave.
The board may grant a period of unpaid leave as determined by the board. The period of leave and reason for unpaid leave shall be determined by the board. The board shall not be required to pay any salary or benefits during periods of unpaid leave except as may be required by law.
