An Act To Amend Title 14 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Absences Of School Employees.


Currently school employees must use their accumulated sick leave to take off for a religious holiday that is not a State recognized religious holiday. This Act allows for 2 floating holidays per school year that would not fall within a State recognized religious holiday. The 2 floating holidays are not to be considered part of the employee's sick leave and cannot be accumulated. The building administrator must approve the request to be absent for a floating holiday but cannot ask the reason for the request. A request may only be denied if school operational requirements cannot be met.
