PRDS PROTOCOL ON FACULTY LEAVE
UNANTICIPATED ABSENCE / ILLNESS:
If Sick or Late: please notify PRDS CANCELLATION at 415-476-0859 or email firstname.lastname@example.org of your absence or lateness due to illness, family emergencies, etc. by 7:30AM or as soon as possible the day of absence. Thank you.
1. Vacation or Professional Leave: complete a “Request for Leave” form online at least 2 months in advance of leave for approval by Division Chair. Leave approval is dependent on the Department’s ability to cover teaching assignments. If there is a shortage in teaching coverage, faculty may be asked to make their own coverage arrangements with colleagues prior to being approved for leave. For leaves that are > 7 days, approval is necessary from both Division Chair and Department Chair.
2. Quarter Breaks: faculty must submit leave requests during quarter break periods if not planning to attend PRDS or University activities, such as seminars, clinic coverage, research and/or admin, etc.
3. Leave Approval: your leave is not approved until you receive a confirming email with the word APPROVAL FOR LEAVE from your Division Chair. Leave responses are sent generally within 2 weeks of the request.
