Temporary Disability Leave
Temporary Disability Leave (TDL) is offered to provide a measure of job protection to full-time educators who cannot work for a continuous, extended period of time because of mental or physical disability of a temporary nature. This includes pregnancy.
TDL is only available to individuals in a position that requires certification issued by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC).
An employee must complete an FMLA Leave Request in order to begin the process of requesting leave.
TDL is granted per incident as one continuous block of time and is not intended to be taken on an intermittent or reduced schedule basis. It is the only leave recorded in calendar days. If approved, the length of leave is no longer than 180 days.
