EVSC School Board extends COVID-19 leave for faculty, staff

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The EVSC School Board has voted to extend Coronavirus Leave.

This decision allows educators who have to miss work because of a positive covid test or being a close contact, to do so without using sick or personal time.

The Evansville Teachers Association calls the move a way to ensure safety in schools because employees won’t be tempted to go to work while sick.
