ACT NOW for adequate sick leave for school employees!

✅SB 213 provides adequate sick leave for school employees injured while assisting students.

  • SB 213 requires a school employee to receive sick leave for a period up to one year when disabled while acting in their official capacity and providing physical assistance to a student to prevent danger or risk of injury to the student
  • SB 213 requires employees to present a certificate from a physician certifying the disability

Currently, teachers receive up to a full year to recover while support staff only receive up to 90 days. This bill provides the same benefit to support staff who face the same risks as teachers. Together we can ensure all school staff receive the benefits they deserve.
