LEAVE OF ABSENCE PRACTICES IN SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOLS--SCHOOL YEAR 1964-65.
South Dakota Education Association, Pierre.
IN ADDITION TO SCHOOL POLICIES RELATING TO TEACHER LEAVES OF ABSENCE IN SOUTH DAKOTA, STATE BY STATE SUMMARIES OF EDUCATIONAL LEGISLATION REGARDING SICK LEAVE, MATERNITY LEAVE, AND SABBATICAL LEAVE ARE PRESENTED IN THIS DOCUMENT. OF THE 228 RESPONDING SCHOOLS IN SOUTH DAKOTA, 215 REPORTED EXISTING SICK LEAVE POLICIES. THE MAJORITY OF RESPONDING SCHOOLS ALLOW FIVE DAYS FOR YEARLY AND CUMMULATIVE SICK LEAVE, WITH PERSONAL ILLNESS, AND ILLNESS OR DEATH IN THE IMMEDIATE FAMILY BEING THE MOST COMMON REASONS FOR GRANTING SICK LEAVE. IT WAS ALSO REPORTED THAT NEARLY HALF OF THE SCHOOLS DO NOT PAY TEACHERS IF SICK LEAVE HAS BEEN EXHAUSTED. ATTENDANCE AT PROFESSIONAL MEETINGS WITH PAY IS ALMOST STANDARD POLICY. MANY SCHOOLS INDICATED NO POLICY FOR SCHOOL VISITATIONS, JURY DUTY, RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS, MATERNITY LEAVE, SABBATICAL LEAVE, AND SERVING ON LEGISLATIVE BODIES. THE SECTION ON SOUTH DAKOTA CONCLUDES WITH DATA WHICH INDICATES--(1) VERY FEW TEACHERS ABUSE SICK LEAVE POLICY, AND (2) THE MAJORITY OF SCHOOL SYSTEMS FAVOR A STATE-WIDE SICK LEAVE POLICY. THE FINAL PART OF THE DOCUMENT IS DEVOTED TO A STATE BY STATE SUMMARY OF EDUCATIONAL LEGISLATION REGARDING SICK LEAVE, MATERNITY LEAVE, AND SABBATICAL LEAVE FOR TEACHERS. (JS)
