Leaves and Absences

PISD offers employees paid and unpaid leaves of absence in times of personal need. This page describes the basic types of leave available and restrictions on leaves of absence.
For more details, see the PISD Employee Handbook or contact the HR Department.

Any employee, who is absent more than 5 days because of a personal or family illness, must submit a medical certification from a qualified health care provider confirming the specific dates of the illness, the reason for the illness, and—in the case of personal illness—the employee’s fitness to return to work.

Employees who expect to be absent for an extended period of more than five days should call the HR Department for information about applicable leave benefits, payment of insurance premiums, and requirements for communicating with the district.
