Sick Leave Bank
The Human Resources Leaves of Absence department administers all leaves of absence in excess of ten (10) consecutive days.
Timing is Important!
Application for benefits from the Sick Leave Bank must be made in a timely manner prior to exhaustion of available leave in order to ensure no interruption of pay.

APS, ATF, AEAA, and ASCA recognize the need for an available pool of sick leave days upon which eligible employees, having experienced catastrophic illnesses or injuries, may draw upon to alleviate great financial hardship. To this end, we have established a self-funded Sick Leave Bank (SLB).
The SLB’s purpose is to provide sick leave coverage to those employees intending to return to work upon recovery from their illness or injury.
The Sick Leave Bank (SLB) is available to employees covered by the negotiated agreements for the:
- Albuquerque Teachers Federation (refer to your negotiated agreement for more information)
- Albuquerque Educational Assistants Association (refer to for more information)
- Albuquerque Secretarial/Clerical Association (refer to for more information)
Respective negotiated agreements provide this benefit to participants who have exhausted all accrued leave (personal, sick, annual) and are experiencing a catastrophic illness or injury.
Administrative employees may elect to participate in the Administrator's Sick Leave Bank. Learn more >>
