4437 - MILITARY LEAVE

A service personnel employee who is a member of the national guard or armed forces reserves, shall be entitled to a military leave of absence from the Board of Education without loss of pay, status or efficiency rating, on the days during which they are ordered, by properly designated authority, to be engaged in drills, parades or other duty, field training or active service of the State, for a maximum period of thirty (30) working days in any one (1) calendar year.

Effective September 11, 2001, a service personnel employee called to active duty by the properly designated Federal authority shall be entitled to military leave of absence from the Board without loss of pay, status or efficiency rating for a maximum period of thirty (30) working days for a single call to active duty. If the employee called to active duty has not used all or some portion of the thirty (30) working days of military leave of absence granted by the first paragraph of this policy, s/he shall be entitled to add the number of unused days from that calendar year to the thirty (30) working days granted by this paragraph, up to a maximum of sixty (60) days for a single call to active duty. However, none of the unused days of military leave of absence granted by the first paragraph may be carried over and used in the next calendar year.

The term "without loss of pay" means that the employee shall continue to receive his/her normal salary or compensation, notwithstanding the fact that such employee may have received other compensation from Federal or State sources during the same period.
