The Extended Illness Program (EIP) provide additional sick leave for those members who have a long-term (20 or more consecutive days) illness or injury and who have exhausted their sick leave. A Legacy or part-time employee may enroll by donating one day of his/her sick leave to the program equivalent to the contracted FTE.  Enrollment may be accomplished by submitting the EIP Application to the EIP Committee.  This committee will consist of Deputy Superintendent, Chief Financial Officer, and Director of Human Resources or designees. 

A short-term disability (STD) benefit is provided for Hybrid Employees, therefore, Hybrid Employees are not eligible to participate in EIP.  For further information, see

See Policy GCBD-RZ - Sick Leave for more information.
