Educational Leave

Teachers who have five or more full years of employment may apply through their district offices for paid education leave. Such leave is awarded on a university semester basis and pay during the period is at 80% of regular salary. The availability of education leave is limited and restricted to programs of study approved by the registrar of teachers based on priority identified by the school districts.
