The Washington Parish School Board shall grant military leave to employees of the Board upon proper submission of application for such leave.  Leave with pay for military purposes, not to exceed fifteen (15) days in one calendar year, shall be granted employees.  Leave without pay shall be granted when leave is for more than fifteen (15) days or to other employees who do not qualify for leave with pay.  All requests for military leave shall be presented to the Board for approval and must be accompanied by proper documents attesting to call to duty.  Voluntary military leave shall not be considered a call to duty and shall not meet the criteria for leave with pay for military purposes.


An employee on extended military leave (longer than fifteen  (15) days) must apply for reinstatement of his/her former position within thirty (30) days after end of leave; he/she shall then be reinstated at the salary then in force in the salary schedule.  If the employee reports for work within ninety (90) days of discharge, he/she shall be reinstated without loss of seniority rights and privileges provided he/she makes request within the thirty (30) days mentioned above and submits satisfactory evidence of honorable discharge or separation from service.  The Board may transfer the employee to a position of comparable status, if, in the opinion of the Board, such action is beneficial to the school system.
