Virginia Administrative Code
Title 8. Education
Agency 20. State Board Of Education
Chapter 460. Regulations Governing Sick Leave Plan for Teachers
12/1/2021

8VAC20-460-10. Allowances.

Allowances shall be as follows:

1. Each full-time teacher in the public free schools shall earn a minimum of 10 days each year.

2. Earnings for less than a full year of full-time employment shall be at the rate of one day per month, or major fraction thereof. This provision applies to teachers who do not begin teaching at the start of the school term and to those who do not complete the full year.

3. A teacher cannot claim any portion of earned leave unless he or she has actually reported for duty for the regular school term in accordance with the terms of the teacher's contract. If a teacher is unable, because of illness, to begin teaching when school opens in the fall, such teacher may be allowed to use accumulated leave not to exceed the balance credited to him or her as of June 30 of the immediate preceding school year.

4. School boards may, by resolution, permit teachers to anticipate sick leave earnings for the current school year, provided adequate provision is made for a refund in the event the teacher terminates employment before such credit is earned.
