The answer depends on your local administration. They have dealt with this before and I imagine have options. My ISD paid 50 dollars a day for each sick day I didn’t take. The maximum was 100 days. It was a nice (but taxable) little check at retirement. They rationalized it was better to pay the teacher than to pay a sub for multiple days in addition to paying the teachers salary. They also understood that the real teacher was better than a random sub in serving the students.
Many districts will require documentation from a doctor to take a lot of sick days in a row.
Personal days were always fair game for me to take.
So with all that said……the answer and the power is in your ISD policy.
