Committee Hearing takes place within twelve legislative days.
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.
