During the 2016-17 school year, PAT members helped 30 colleagues in need thanks to contributions to the PAT Sick Leave Bank. These colleagues had exhausted their accumulated leave balances, but were unable to work due to extended or recurring personal illness. But thanks to our contributions to the Sick Leave Bank, they were able to avoid the additional hardships of lost salary and lost insurance coverage.
Thanks to your generosity, last year we met our goal of receiving the maximum number of voluntarily-donated hours allowed under our new contract language. For the first time in years, we were able to fulfill almost all applications for assistance prior to running out of Sick Leave Bank hours.
This shows the District that PAT members act on their belief that an injury to one is an injury to all.
It’s a new school year, with new needs, and a new Bank to fill. We can accept up to 4000 hours and have a long way to go to reach that goal.
Please use this form to donate - and thank you!
