Article VIII Professional Evaluation

VIII.8 Impact of Employee Attendance on Marzano Element #59

Pursuant to 1012.61, Florida Statutes, employees are allotted ten sick leave days each year, up to six of which per year may be used as personal days. Any employee who is absent more than ten days (or equivalently, 75 hours) in a single year may have their score on Marzano Element #59 reduced according to the following table:
Amount of Time Missed Beyond Ten Days
Score on Marzano Element #59
0-3 days (0-22.5 hours)
3-10 days (22.6 – 75 hours)
11-20 days (75.1 – 150 hours)
21 or more days (150.1 or more hours)
Time missed beyond ten days due to medical need (FMLA, etc.), will not be counted against the employee for this purpose. An administrator who has reasonable suspicion that leave is being misused may require documentation or other verification of the circumstances requiring leave to be taken.
