Last Revised: 12 May 2000
Refer Questions To: Vice President, Clerc Center


This policy applies to regular status and extended temporary status teachers in the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center (Clerc Center) of Gallaudet University.


Teachers are eligible for up to three days (or 21 hours) of personal leave with pay each academic year for situations of a personal nature not covered by other leave policies. Teachers who begin after the start of the academic year or who are in a non-pay status are eligible for one and one-half days (or 10.5 hours) of personal leave for each full semester scheduled to be worked.

Personal leave hours which are not used during the academic year are converted into sick leave hours.

Personal leave is normally not approved during the following times: (a) the first or last week of a semester; (b) exam weeks; (c) days immediately preceding or following a calendar vacation period (e.g., winter break); (d) professional development days. Additionally, requests for personal leave may be denied if the taking of personal leave will have a negative impact on school operations.

Employees on personal leave continue to accrue leave in the usual manner.
