Any certificated employee of any school district who has been an employee of that district for a period of one school year or more and who accepts a position requiring certification qualifications in another school district or community college district at any time during the second or any succeeding school year of his or her employment with the first school district, or who, within the school year succeeding the school year in which employment is terminated, signifies acceptance of his or her election or employment in a position requiring certification qualifications in another school district or community college district, shall have transferred with him or her to the second district the total amount of leave of absence for illness or injury to which he or she is entitled under Section 44978. The State Board of Education shall adopt rules and regulations prescribing the manner in which the first district shall certify to the second district the total amount of leave of absence for illness or injury to be transferred. No governing board shall adopt any policy or rule, written or unwritten, which requires any certificated employee transferring to its district to waive any part or all of the leave of absence which he or she may be entitled to have transferred in accordance with this section.
