Out of your accumulated sick leave, (6) days may be used as personal leave each school calendar year. Personal leave hours are listed separately from the sick hours. However, both sick and personal time is deducted from the SAME available total sick leave balance. Therefore, if you do not have sick time available, you cannot use personal time. For example: If an employee has 8.0 hrs of sick time available and 20 hours of personal time is available, they can only take 8.0 hours of personal time. After that they are entirely out of sick and personal time.
