X Other Reasons
The board of education believes that the regular presence of assigned personnel is vital to the success of the district's educational program. Consistent absenteeism or tardiness is unacceptable and subject to disciplinary action.
The superintendent shall develop and the board shall adopt a plan to encourage all staff to strive for excellent attendance and punctuality records. These procedures should include a requirement that the staff member personally report all illnesses and request all leave at the earliest possible time. Procedures shall be in accordance with New Jersey statutes and district negotiated contracts.
