arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education recognizes that a broad range of experiences can strengthen an employee's ability to meet the district's needs.

The Board may grant a professional leave of absence for up to one year to classified employees for the purpose of permitting study or retraining the employee to meet changing conditions within the district. No more than one such leave of absence may be granted to an employee in a seven-year period for purposes of study or three-year period for purposes of retraining. (Education Code 45381, 45382)

(cf. 4161/4261/4361 - Leaves)

(cf. 4231 - Staff Development)

To be eligible for a leave for study purposes, the employee must have served in the district for at least seven consecutive years preceding the granting of the leave. If the leave is for purposes of retraining, the employee must have served in the district for at least three consecutive years preceding the granting of the leave. Any professional leave of absence granted by the Board shall not be deemed a break in service. However, it will not be included as service in computing service for the granting of any subsequent professional leave. (Education Code 45382)
