Sick Leave Bank

Sick Leave Bank: Rules and Procedures

The purpose of the Sick Leave Bank is to provide sick leave to contributors to the bank after their accumulated sick leave has been exhausted and more specifically to provide such leave from the bank in cases of prolonged, catastrophic, incapacitating personal illness, injury, or quarantine of the teacher during the regularly scheduled duty day, which is not likely to permanently disable the teacher.  All members should be aware of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and we strongly suggest all members consider purchasing Long Term Disability Insurance (LTD) through the school system benefits office.

Reminder – the enrollment period for the Sick Leave Bank is August 1 – Oct. 1

Membership in the Sick Leave Bank is free to WCTA members (except for the donation of days); non-WCTA members may join the Sick Leave Bank but must pay an administration fee. Please contact Jamie Barrett at the WCTA office – 301-797-7682 for more information.
