...I think this is a local policy decision here, so your mileage may vary. In every district I have worked in, if you use more than three sick days in a row, you have to provide documentation from your doctor verifying the need for an extended absence. The only exception was "Assult Leave", where you could stay home anywhere from one calendar year, to indefinitely, depending on the district I was working in. Otherwise they start docking your pay. |
With that said, I do know of a director that was fed up with the situation at his school, and he worked around that requirement by going three days off, show up the next day, then take the next three off...wash, rinse, repeat. His administrators were PO'd, but they couldn't do anything about it because the director was in compliance with local policy. At the end of the year, he retired.
