Chapter 460. Regulations Governing Sick Leave Plan for Teachers
12/1/2021

8VAC20-460-50. Termination of accumulative sick leave; transfer of sick leave; when teacher presumed to have left teaching profession.

All accumulated sick leave shall terminate, except as defined below, upon the expiration of employment as a teacher. A teacher may transfer from one school system to another in Virginia and also may transfer any accumulated leave if the school board of the system to which the transfer is being made signifies its willingness to accept such transfer.

A teacher will be presumed to have left the teaching profession if he or she accepts employment other than in the public school system of Virginia, or is unable to teach in the public schools of Virginia for a period of three consecutive years because of illness or physical disability or family responsibilities. Teachers who leave the teaching profession to enter the armed services do not forfeit accumulated earnings unless they fail to return to the teaching profession immediately upon discharge from an original tour of duty in the armed services.
