Substitute Teaching

Any unit member may miss one (1) class per course per semester due to illness or personal emergency, or to accommodate professional development, without penalty providing that notification is given to the Department Chairperson, or his or her departmental designee, prior to the class meeting. Failure to notify according to this procedure will result in loss of compensation for that class meeting. Sick days are not cumulative; they may not be carried over to the next semester.
