Leaves

This page provides information about all leave options available to employees. 

From April to December 2020, City Schools implemented additional leave provisions that were included in federal legislation covering that time period, known as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. While the provisions in that act expired at the end of December, City Schools extended the leave provisions until January 31, 2021. 
 
Starting in February, employees will be granted leave time (outside of their regular, accrued leave) if:

  • they are instructed to quarantine for a reason other than their own illness (for example, if there's a COVID case in their class that requires the teacher to quarantine), or
  • they develop COVID-like symptoms or test positive for COVID when there has been a COVID case at their work site.

In other cases, if an employee is sick, they should use the sick leave time allocated for this purpose. No employee should ever report to work sick. 
 
If needed, staff members who have chosen to participate in their union's sick bank may also make a request to the sick bank. In addition, the district offers staff members without accrued leave the opportunity to request a leave advance.
