Sick Bank Opt Out Tutorial

DP324 NEG - Sick Leave- Licensed and DP326 NEG - Sick Leave- Education Support Professionals

Welcome to the 2023-24 contract year! As an annual reminder, in accordance with DP326 NEG H. 1. and 2. and DP324 NEG H. 1. and 2., participation in the Employee-Funded Sick Leave Bank requires a contract employee to annually donate one day of accumulated annual leave into the Sick Leave Bank.  The Employee-Funded Sick Leave Bank is not intended to be used for in-and-out absences, elective medical procedures or other medical care that could be scheduled during non-contract time.

Each year, contract employees wishing to opt out of participation in the sick bank must annually complete the appropriate online form in Employee Access no later than September 1 for current employees and October 1 for first-year licensed employees, including administrators. This opt out request must be submitted annually. Prior to completion of this form, it is strongly encouraged to review all District Leave Policies.

*Education Support Professionals who are considered ‘provisional’ as of July 1 and hourly employees (non-contract), are not eligible for sick bank benefits that year, therefore, a sick bank donation will not be deducted (if applicable).  Please be aware that policies and eligibility requirements for Licensed (DP324 NEG) and Education Support Professionals (DP326 NEG) employees are different.  These and other District policies are available for review at
