409.6 Licensed Employee Jury Duty Leave

Code No. 409.6


The board will allow licensed employees to be excused for jury duty unless extraordinary circumstances exist. The superintendent has the discretion to determine when extraordinary circumstances exist.

Employees who are called for jury service will notify the direct supervisor within twenty-four hours after notice of call to jury duty and suitable proof of jury service pay must be presented to the school district.

Licensed employees will receive their regular salary.

NOTE: This policy reflects the practice that the employee sign over checks received for jury duty to the school district. School districts which let employees keep their checks but then deduct the amount from the employee's salary, should reflect that practice in the third paragraph.
