    "Joe" retired from our district this year with 90 unused sick days.
    He asked for sub pay for them but was denied claiming it was not his earnings just a benefit. Isn't this just encouraging people to lie about sick leave to use them? Not saying that would be right...just tempting them.

    Last night at negotiations, the board said next year everyone will get additional sick days as part of their earnings. Joe's situation was brought up and they claimed that is different. I see it as either it's earnings, or it's not.

    How does your district handle it?

    You can 'buy back' your sick days and add that to your retirement in Texas.

    Currently we get paid for unused sick days up to 180 days...I have about 130 on the books.

    We lose ours when we retire, so yes, teachers take many sick days in their final 5 years. We can bank up to 120 of them.
