More information about the bond

California Education Code section 44969 deals with leave of absences for certified employees (teachers, counselors, etc.) and the possibility of receiving salary continuation during the leave. Let’s break it down:

Leave with Pay and Service Agreement:

  • This section applies when a leave of absence is granted under Section 44966 (which allows for leaves for illness, pregnancy, etc.).
  • To be eligible for continued pay while on leave, the employee must agree to return and work for the district for twice the length of the leave upon returning.

Bond Requirement for Continued Pay:

  • To receive salary during the leave, the employee may be required to provide a California Leave of Absence Salary Continuation Bond.
  • This is a financial guarantee that reimburses the district if the employee doesn’t fulfill the agreed-upon service time after returning.
  • If the surety company pays a claim on the bond, it will seek restitution from the bond principal (teacher taking leave).

In Summary:

Section 44969 outlines the conditions for certified employees in California to receive salary continuation during a leave of absence. It requires a written agreement to return and work double the leave time and a California Leave of Absence Salary Continuation Bond to ensure fulfillment of that agreement.
