If the employee is adopting, she/he shall notify the Superintendent as soon as she/he becomes aware that the child is ready for placement. The Board shall honor the leave dates so requested if the same will not substantially interfere with the effective administration of the educational program to which the employee was assigned, and subject to the following conditions:
1. The Board may require, as a condition of the employee’s return to service, production of a certificate from a physician certifying that the employee is medically able to resume her duties.
2. With respect to non-tenured employees, no such leave shall extend beyond the end of the current year in which said leave is to commence.
3. With respect to tenured employees, no such leave shall extend beyond June 30th of the school year following the school year in which the leave commenced.
4. Any leave related to child rearing to whom the employee is entitled by law shall be deemed included in the above leave, excluding, however, leave time related to disability.
A. The Board reserves the right to remove any pregnant employee from any position or to insist that the employee accept a leave of absence therefrom, if after the pregnancy is confirmed, the employee’s performance has substantially declined in comparison to her performance prior to the medical confirmation of pregnancy, or if the employee’s physical condition or capacity is such that her health would be impaired if she were to continue working. Such physical capacity shall be deemed so impaired if any of the following occur:
1. The pregnant employee, after written request from the Superintendent, fails to produce a certification from her physician that she is medically able to continue to perform her duties; or
2. The pregnant employee’s physician and a physician designated by the Board agree that the employee is not medically able to perform her duties, or
3. If, after a difference of medical opinion by the employee’s physician and the Board’s physician, a third physician designated by mutual agreement of the employee and the Board, or, if no such agreement can be reached by the Burlington County Medical Society, certifies that, in said physician’s opinion, the employee is not medically able to perform her duties. If it becomes necessary to seek the opinion of a third physician, the fee shall be shared equally by the Board and the employee involved.
B. In the event that the employee’s pregnancy terminates prior to the expiration of the leave which has been granted, or prior to the inception of the leave which may have been requested, said employee may apply for early reinstatement by filing a written request with the Superintendent accompanied by a physician’s certificate that the employee is medically able to resume or to continue her duties. The Board shall grant such a request if it has not contractually obligated itself to employ a replacement for the employee in question during the period for which leave had been originally requested or granted, and if such request can be fulfilled without substantially interfering with the effective administration of the educational program to which the employee in question was assigned and seeks to be reinstated.
C. After the grant of leave to any employee pursuant to the above provisions, the Board will give reasonable consideration to requests from the employee for either the extension or reduction of that period of leave so granted, provided that the employee requesting same makes written application for such adjustments to the Superintendent of Schools and submits with that application a certificate from a physician certifying that said reduction or extension of leave is not medically contraindicated and that the employee is or will be able to resume all duties on the date on which resumption is requested.
A.

The Superintendent shall thereafter make his/her recommendations to the Board with respect to sabbatical leaves on or before April 1st of the year in which application was made.
C. No application for sabbatical leave shall be considered unless the applicant has completed at least seven (7) consecutive years of service in the school district as a teaching staff member. In computing this service qualification, absence on a Board approved leave of absence for the period of one year shall not be considered to have interrupted one’s prior record of consecutive service, but the period of such absence shall not be regarded as a year of service for the purpose of computing the number of years required. Leaves for more than one year shall have the effect of interrupting the record of consecutive service.
D. Persons approved for sabbatical leave pursuant to the terms of this article shall be paid during the period of such leave at a rate equivalent to 50% of the salary which said person would have received had he/she remained on active duty in the district.
E. The applicant shall be required to contract with the Board to return and perform his/her professional duties for a minimum of two (2) years following the expiration of such leave. He/she shall further agree to refund (a) 100% of all salary paid during said sabbatical leave of absence in default of said return, or (b) 50% of all salary paid during said sabbatical leave of absence after a return of one year and less than two (2) years.
F. The returning teacher shall be placed on the appropriate step of the salary scale he/she would have attained if sabbatical leave had not interrupted his/her service to the School District.
G. The determination of which applicants are qualified for sabbatical leave shall be within the sole discretion of the Board of Education after receiving the advice of the Superintendent. Among the relevant factors to be considered in such a determination shall be the nature of the proposed leave, the area of the applicant’s specialization, the needs of the School District, and the length of the applicant’s service within the District.
PROTECTION OF EMPLOYEES, STUDENTS AND PROPERTY
A. Employees shall not be required to work under unsafe or hazardous conditions or to perform tasks which endanger their health, safety, or well-being.

C. Whenever any action is brought against an employee before the Board or before the Commissioner of Education of the State of New Jersey which may affect his/her employment or salary status, the Board of Education shall reimburse him/her for the cost of his/her defense if the action is dismissed or results in a final decision in favor of the employee.
