The board of education shall grant leave to employees who have been selected for jury duty or who have been sub­poenaed as a witness in a criminal, civil, or juvenile proceeding.  Employees shall be paid the full, current contract salary during such service.  Monies necessary to pay substitute teachers shall not be deducted from the salary of a teacher performing jury duty.  However, the amount received by the teacher for jury duty service shall be applied toward the expense of the substitute teacher.


It is the policy of the board that the school district will not provide teachers with paid leave for non-subpoenaed testimony as a witness in a child custody case involving a student in this district.  If a teacher testifies as a witness as a result of being subpoenaed, any compensation received from the court by the teacher shall be applied toward the expense of a substitute teacher.


If a school district employee is subpoenaed to appear as a witness in a civil court proceeding, except in a proceeding in which the school district or the state is a party, the school district shall be entitled to a witness fee equal to the amount of the substitute teacher cost, not to exceed One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) per day.
