All those hired under the Unit A contract who, from time of the first opportunity, select the agency fee or the scholarship option rather than membership in the West Springfield Education Association, who choose NOT to participate, and withhold their sick day from the sick bank, will receive NO benefit from the sick bank at any time in the future.
All those requesting days from the sick bank must make a written request via the attached application.
All such requests shall be sent to Sick Bank Chairperson for presentation to the committee.

Medical need must be verified by a physician's note.
Medical information must include the beginning date, length of the expected recuperation, and the expected date of return to work signed by the physician in charge.
Medical leave, provided by sick bank days, will end no later than the last day of the school year in which the days were granted.

At the discretion of the committee, extensions of the 30 day rule may be granted in extreme circumstances.
