The Pointe Coupee Parish School Board may grant leave of absence, without pay, to any regularly employed teacher or other employee for periods of time not to exceed one year.  Such leave shall be granted by the Board, upon proper request in writing by the employee, whenever in the discretion of the Board such leave is in the best interest of the school district.


Such leave does not affect any tenure rights which the applicant has previously acquired, but it interrupts active service in relation to sabbatical leave entitlement.


The Pointe Coupee Parish School Board shall not pay the employer’s share of health insurance or life insurance premiums for employees who are on approved leave without pay.
