The Board may provide all administrative staff with the following benefits:

  D. Liability Coverage
    All administrators will be covered under the District's self-insurance general liability coverage.


  E. Workers' Compensation
    Florida State law requires Workers' Compensation to be provided to all employees and volunteers of the District. This assures administrators who sustain a work-related illness or injury both income and medical care for that injury until they are able to return to work.
    Administrators who are eligible for Workers' Compensation may be paid earned sick leave benefits in addition to Workers' Compensation benefits. The sick leave amount is reduced by the amount of the Workers' Compensation benefit. In no case can total pay exceed the administrator's regular at-work salary.

    Legal services in tort action shall be provided for administrators at such time when action is construed to be an outcome of duties performed for the Board.


  I. Terminal Pay
    Administrators shall be eligible for terminal pay at the time of retirement, provided that retirement coincides with termination, or payment to the beneficiary, if service is terminated by death. The Superintendent shall develop Terminal Pay Procedures. This procedures manual may be updated by the Superintendent as necessary to ensure compliance with applicable law and/or rule.


  J. Holidays
    Holidays will be designated by the Board at the time it adopts and amends the school calendar and/or ratifies contractual agreements with employee bargaining units.


  K. Sick Leave Bank
    The sick leave bank, available to eligible administrators, is a source from which additional paid sick leave days may be granted for the administrators' catastrophic, prolonged personal illness, accident, or injury. Membership in the sick leave bank is available to administrators after completion of at least one full year of employment with the District. The Sick Leave Bank Procedures is incorporated by reference and is part of the policy. The procedures may be updated by the Superintendent as necessary.


  L. Calculation of Terminal Pay and Annual Payment for Accumulated Sick Leave
