Types of Leave

Note: Most of these are paid leave but for teachers only two types can be converted into an enhance pension benefit: sick and annual leave.  Some accumulations of leave are eligible for cash payment upon resignation or retirement (separation pay).  Most employees who have met a 15-year service requirement are also eligible to receive payment for accumulated sick leave at a daily rate (e.g., professional support employees receive $40 per day for accumulated sick leave).  Unfortunately, descriptions of accumulations differ from negotiating unit to negotiating unit, are not always clear, and in some cases are not monitored by AACPS administrators.  Source: Anne Arundel County Public Schools Internal Audit Report, July 13, 2005.
