3460 - RELEASE TIME FOR FUNERAL OF CURRENT STAFF MEMBER

When an untimely death of a member of the current teaching/administrative staff occurs during the normal school year, and when the funeral service is scheduled during normal school hours, school will remain in session as part of the tribute paid to the individual who has chosen to dedicate his/her life to teaching and working with the youth of this Corporation.

When such an occurrence happens, members of the teaching faculty from the same school staff where the deceased staff member was officially assigned, will be released upon request from their assignment for the length of time necessary to attend the funeral service if that service is held in Tippecanoe County.

Staff members who wish to be released must notify their principal, in advance of the date of the funeral service, and are expected to report to work prior to their release and to return to work immediately following the service.
