Article 34 Disability Allowance


The District may grant a leave of absence to any academic member who has applied for disability allowance, not to exceed thirty (30) days beyond final determination of the disability allowance by the State Teachers’ Retirement System (STRS). If the member is determined to be eligible for disability allowance by STRS, the leave shall be extended for the term of disability, but not more than thirty-nine (39) months.


The District shall classify as temporary members those persons employed to fill vacancies caused by the absence of academic members who are classified as permanent and are receiving a disability or insurance allowance or benefit from the system or from a group insurance plan for which the District is paying the cost or deducting the cost from the members’ salaries.


For purposes of this section, the term of employment of the temporary member shall be equal to the number of days of absence of the member receiving the disability allowance.


If the term of employment extends beyond this period, the temporary member shall be credited for all days served as a probationary member pursuant to Ed. Code requirements.
