Sick Leave Donation Policy

The JPSB adopted a Sick Leave Donation Policy. The policy provides for one or more district employee(s) to donate sick leave to another district employee who has exhausted all other leave as a result of a catastrophic illness or injury of the employee or a member of the employee’s immediate family.

• Employees who apply to receive donated days must be members of the Sick Bank. Employees who elect to donate sick days to other employees do not need to be members of the Sick Bank.

Employees should complete the Sick Leave Bank Membership Application Form and send to Penny Ledet, Administrative Assistant, Personnel Services. The form can be emailed to: or hand delivered to the Human Resources Department at 501 Manhattan Boulevard in Harvey, LA 70058.

Only employees who are enrolled in the 2018-2019 Sick Bank will be eligible to participate in the Sick Bank Donation process and be eligible to receive up to thirty (30) donated sick days from JPPSS colleagues. For questions, please contact Penny Ledet at:
