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.
