Community Service Leave - Literacy, Tutoring, and Mentoring Policy

In recognition of the state’s interests in supporting its students in compliance with The Excellent Public Schools Act of 2013, special provisions of the Community Service Leave policy (Section 5, pages 13-18) allow an alternate option in lieu of regular Community Service Leave (24 hours) for leave to be granted to: 

  • any employee to volunteer in a literacy program in a public school; or 
  • any employee for tutoring and mentoring a student in a formal standardized approved tutoring/mentoring program in a public school or a non-public school
