January 3, 2020 is a Workday

You are expected to be at school on January 3rd.  Remember, if you need that day off for personal reasons, you can ask for a Personal Day through your building administrator.  If you need to use a sick day, remember there is specific language in the Ohio Revised Code to be considered a sick day:

3319.141 Sick leave

Teachers and regular non-teaching school employees, upon approval of the responsible administrative officer of the school district, may use sick leave for absence due to personal illness, pregnancy, injury, exposure to contagious disease which could be communicated to others, and for absence due to illness, injury, or death in the employee's immediate family.

Contract Language around Retirement

If you are close to the end of your career in education, in order to make the most of your retirement there are a few areas of the contract you should read.

Article 16.03 (page 28)

This refers to Severance Pay, specifically for those with more than 200 sick days accumulated.  In order to get 'super severance', you must retire the first year you are eligible for reduced benefits or the first year you are eligible for unreduced benefits.  If you are close to retirement and would like to know what that means to you, contact me and I will pull it together for you.  

The chart for benefits is at this link:



Article 17.02 (page 28)

If you notify Human Resources by the last work day in January, you will receive a one-time payment of $500.
