Child Rearing Leave

Child Rearing Leave
1. At the request of the faculty member, a reduction in load for an unpaid child rearing leave may be granted to a maximum of twelve (12) months upon approval of the College President, and the Board of Trustees. When child rearing leave is combined with family care leave, a workload of at least fifty percent (50%) for the length of the academic year will ensure that advancement on the faculty salary schedule, tenure progression, and scheduled evaluations will occur. (Refer to Article 11.N.4 regarding eligibility for benefits.)

2. If mutually agreed by the employee and the College President, with approval of the Chancellor, an additional time of up to a maximum of twelve (12) months may be granted by the Board of Trustees.

3. Upon return from a child rearing leave, the employee shall be reinstated to the same assignment held at the time the leave was granted or an assignment as near as possible within the District's work requirement.
