The Harford County Education Association (HCEA) Sick Leave Bank (SLB) is a benefit available to all Harford County educators who choose to enroll in the program. The SLB exists as a safety net for educators who may encounter catastrophic and incapacitating illnesses and who have exhausted all of their allotted sick and personal business days. The Bank is administered as a collaborative effort by HCEA and HCPS and is contained in the negotiated agreement. Applications for use of days from the SLB are reviewed by the SLB Committee. This committee consists of HCEA members and HCPS employees.
For information on enrollment into the SLB visit our SLB Q&A’s page.
SLB Review Process
For instructions on the SLB application click here.
SLB applications received by staff will be processed and given to the SLB committee for review. Incomplete or improperly completed applications will not be reviewed by the committee. Applicants will be notified if the application is incomplete. Thus, it is advisable that the applicant keep a photo copy on hand, in order to attempt to have corrections made as soon as possible. Once the SLB committee has reviewed and a decision is made on the request the applicant will be notified.
If you are in need of days from the SLB print and carefully review this SLB Application 2021 & SLB Physician’s Form 2021 For SLB meeting days click here. Please visit our SLB Policies and Procedures, or visit our SLB Q&A’s page for more information.
The rules and regulations governing the SLB are reviewed periodically. Changes may be made as deemed necessary to maintain both the benefit to members and the integrity of the SLB. HCEA and HCPS are committed to implementing and administering the SLB with great care. We will work to ensure that only those who truly fit the requirements are granted days and that the integrity of the Bank is maintained.
