Sick Leave Donation Policy

The JPSB adopted a Sick Leave Donation Policy. The Sick Leave Donation Policy allows for JPPSS employees to donate additional sick leave days to another employee’s sick leave account when said account has been exhausted. An employee may apply to receive donated days in the event of catastrophic illness or injury to the employee or the employee’s immediate family. JPPSS employees who wish to participate in the Sick Bank Donation must be members of the JPSS 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 penny.ledet@jppss.k12.la.us or hand delivered to the Human Resources Department at 501 Manhattan Boulevard in Harvey.

Only employees who are enrolled in the 2016-2017 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.
