EMPLOYEE LEAVE PROCESS
If you are employed by KISD in any capacity (administrator, teacher, teacher/coach, teacher/extra-curricular sponsor, clerical staff, aide, bus driver, food service worker or maintenance worker) and you are not at school--regardless of whether you are out on personal leave, sick leave, workers' comp, or school business (athletic/UIL events, workshops, professional conferences..), an absence from duty request is required. Those employees who teach in the morning and leave for the afternoon to sponsor an approved event should submit a half-day absence from duty request using the school business code. Please note that this is true whether a sub is needed or not.
