PART 1:  ANNUAL LEAVE


Annual leave for full time 12-month department Heads is accrued and/or paid out pursuant to ARP 8.41 – LOA — Annual. Department heads must complete monthly leave reports indicating annual leave usage, and the dean’s office must maintain accurate leave records for each department head. Department heads will accrue annual leave beginning with the effective date of the appointment to this academic administrator position.  Department heads are encouraged to take annual leave to assist them to maintain continuing effectiveness.

 

PART 2:  SICK LEAVE


Sick leave for full time 12-month department Heads is accrued and/or converted pursuant to ARP 8.43-LOA–Sick and ARP 8.42-LOA–Faculty Care Leave.  Department heads must complete monthly leave reports indicating sick leave usage, and the dean’s office must maintain accurate leave records for each department head.

 

PART 3:  SABBATICAL LEAVE


Service in the capacity as a department head is counted for purposes of calculating eligibility for sabbatical leave.  Sabbatical leave for 12-month department heads is governed by ARP 8.54-LOA–Sabbatical. In addition to the procedures of ARP 8.54, a department head may elect to take sabbatical leave in segments. Each leave segment should be of sufficient length to permit a significant planned accomplishment.  When segments are used, the accrual for the next sabbatical leave begins with the end of the academic year in which the first segment was taken.
