FAQs about leaves:
Personal Leave (G.22) – teachers receive 1 personal leave day when they have a bank of 50 sick days, 2 when they have 90 days.  50% of unused leave in a year (minimum .5 of a day) will be carried forward to your bank to a maximum of 10 days.  Remember: a Teacher Request for Leave form must be completed and approved prior to the leave.
Bereavement Leave (G.26) – teachers receive 5 days paid leave on the death of a family member and ½ day to attend a friend or distant family member’s funeral.  Additional unpaid leave may be granted for additional days or for travel. 

Did you know? Language can differ between our Local and Provincial contracts – superior language prevails!  For example, the Provincial CA contains possible provision for an additional 2 days paid leave for travel. Please contact Michele for further information or help regarding leaves!
