    Each year we start off with around 6 sick days. We then accumulate more at a rate of just under one per month. The grand total for sick days is about 12 per year. Sick days roll over from year to year.

    Personal days are a little trickier. New teachers don't get any personal days, but they get one flex day. A flex day is used like a personal day, but it's deducted from accrued sick time at no penalty.

    All teachers other than new ones get different amounts of personal days. They all start off with I think 3 personal days. If you took no sick days (or just the one flex day at no penalty) the previous year, then you get an extra 3 personal days. If you took between 1 and 3 sick days the previous year, you get an extra 1 personal day. If you took more than 3 sick days the previous year, you don't get any personal days. Personal days do NOT roll over and it's a 'use it or lose it' thing.

    Last year I only took my one flex day, so next year I'm going to have (I think) 18 sick days at the start of the year and accumulate about 6 more. I'll also have 6 personal days which I basically have to use up.

    Everyone (new and returning) get 10 sick and 2 personal each year and you can only carry over six days for the following school year. You can't get money for days you have saved so if you have more than 6 near the end of the year you have to use them or lose them. Last year I had to save all mine because I took a month off and I was short a few but the school covered me (charter school so more flexibility). For the last five years I always carried over 6 but this year I will be starting with the 12 days.

    Being in a charter school, do you have the same sort of schedule as a regular public school teacher in terms of holidays and other time off? Do you teach the regular 180-200 days per year?

    I'm always confused about charter school stuff because it varies so much among them.

    Wow you guys get so much more than me, I get 8 sick days and 5 personal days and 4 professional development days. That is it, for the year. I used up all my personal days in a few months (court dates getting custody of my nephew) and had to get a varience to use sick days for the last one.

    Officially jealous here.

    Yes, I didn't know my district was so different. We get a total of 5 sick and 5 personal days per year. Over the last couple years they require advance approval of personal days and request that they are not used on Friday and Monday if possible. How's that for ya'???
    They have had a sub shortage, it seems... They all carry over unless you change districts...then only the sick days carry over since they are provided by the state of Texas.

    Well, we also get 12 sick days, and 3 personal leave days. Like someone else, personal leave have to be requested and approved ahead of time. I believe the personal leave can roll over, as well as the sick leave into a big sick leave account. I think I have almost 40 days of sick leave. Hoping to save up so I can maybe have a baby next year (shhhh, don't tell anyone) I am going to have to talk dh into it lol.

    We start each year with 10 sick days and 3 personal. They all accrue and if you don't take any days then at the end of the year you get a $125 bonus check. Miss 1 day and you get $100 and miss 2 and you get $75. I didn't get the bonus last year since my mother passed away the day before school started. The past 3 years I have gotten the bonus though and it was a nice surprise during the summer break. I think I am starting off this year with around 38.25 days or somewhere close.

    I get 15 sick days, 2 personal days, and 1 "emergency" day a year. The sick days accrue from year to year. If I don't use my personal days, I have the choice of receiving the money they would have paid a sub or having them roll over into sick days. I ALWAYS take my personal days. The "emergency" day is for if your car breaks down or your water heater explodes or something like that. If I don't use it, I lose it.

    No limit to either, but it's assumed that we won't abuse the system. Very few do.

    We get 10 sick and 2 personal each year.They carry over to the next year if unused. I have 33 sick days I could use this year if I need them. When we retire our county will pay us for up to 100 unsed sick days. So...if you are close to retirement you better take off any days over the 100 you've accumulated!

    We have 12 sick and 2 personal. The sick rollover and personal rollover to sick days. I'm not sure if it's based on district or state, but I know at my previous school we would be paid for unused sick days once we retire. I "plan" to save mine so I'm prepared when I have kids, then after that save, save, save until I retire!!

    I could be off by one or two but I think ours is 11 sick and 3 personal business. Unused personal business days roll over into sick days. After six year of teaching, I have about 48 sick days accumulated. I didn't take any last year but the year before I hated my school and took way too many days off! Shame on me. But the job did make me sick...and fed up!! That counts!!

    I work in Nevada as well. Down in Vegas. But we get paid for the personal days if we don't use them. It's somewhere around 90 dollars for each one. http://www.educationbuffet.com

    We get 10 sick and 2 personal. Sick days can accumulate (not to exceed 65 days) but personal days are use it or lose it. I always use my personals. I have only used 2 sick days. I'm trying to save them for when I have a baby :)

    I think Family Leave Act should have prevented you from losing days for custody of your nephew?

    10 sick accumulated to 70
    2 personal (use or lose)
    5 emergency which is basically only for funerals (including student related) and your own personal health issues which pretty much mean in the hospital

    10 sick per year they rollover if you do not use them.
    3 personal- you have to give a reason for 2 of them and 1 day you can take without giving a reason (silly,right? They are my days, I should be able to take them w/o a reason)
    P days do not rollover ....
