Leave Share FAQ's
Q. Does the District share details regarding my medical condition, when approving a leave share request?

A. No, the District does not share medical details when approving a leave share request. An approval for leave share is sent from Human Resources to Payroll for a date range in which employees may receive donations. This is When the Payroll Department receives this approval, a District wide email  is sent out. This gives all employees of the District an equal opportunity to donate sick leave on your behalf.  

Q. Can the District tell me who has donated leave on my behalf?


A. No, the District does not share information with employees regarding the donor(s). We may share the amount received in donations and may also send a thank you to the donor(s) on your behalf if requested.

Q. If I am not approved for leave share and my sick leave is exhausted, can I continue to report unpaid absences?


A. No, the District does not have a leave without pay provision. All employees must be on an approved leave of absence and provide medical documentation of an illness, in support of unpaid or consecutive absences. Any employee who has exhausted sick leave, will be automatically reverted to the next available paid leave accrual. If all available paid leave accrual is exhausted, continued unpaid absences may result in disciplinary action.


Q. I've been off work due to a severe cold and flu and/or my family has been sick due to the flu, can I be considered for leave share for this time?


A. No, the leave share program is intended for medical conditions that are serious in nature. If you have been hospitalized due to serious complications of a flu or secondary sinus or upper respiratory infections, this may be an exception. Please refer to the federal Family Medical Leave for medical certification of your serious health condition and refer to the leave share request page for further instructions regarding the leave share request process.    

Q. If I am approved for leave share and don't use all of my donations, can these remain available for me for another time?

A. No, leave share donations are not taken from employees who have donated unless they are needed, during the leave share approval dates. If you are approved for leave share and are cleared by your doctor to return to work, your leave share approval ends. If your return to work needs to be extended for any reason or if you must return to work on a reduced schedule, your leave share approval may be extended. Please contact the Human Resources Leave and Accommodations Coordinator for any changes in your return to work.
