Sick vs. Family Sick

What is the difference between Sick and Family Sick days?

Family Sick days are days that can be used for a family member’s care and only include the new Sick days given to you each fiscal year. 

Example:

You are a 10 month employee and receive 15 new Sick days each school year (July through June). Only up to 15 Family Sick days can be used that school year for the care of a family member.

Whatever days are not used, carryover into the following year. You can accumulate up to a maximum of 250 days to be used in case of your own extended sick leave or to count towards service for at the time of retirement. 

If you are hired mid-year, the Sick days given to you will be pro-rated.
