Eastern Pulaski voluntarily extends COVID-19 leave
Eastern Pulaski Community School Corporation Board members have decided to continue the benefits of the expanded paid sick leave act regarding COVID-19.
Superintendent Dara Chezem explained, during a regular school board meeting Monday evening, that the act expired and school corporations now have different options regarding COVID-19 sick leave.
She requested the board approve a resolution that would allow the corporation to extend the days through March when the situation can be re-evaluated.
The resolution was approved.
The board then approved a memorandum of understanding with the teachers’ association regarding the resolution.
