What is PEL?

 

Paid Education Leave is a benefit for which PSA employees may apply. Its purpose is to provide employees an opportunity to further their careers and employment opportunities through the completion of a Bachelor, Master, or Doctoral degree that relates to their job or career while being paid 100% of salary. In order to apply, an employee must be a regular full-time employee with a minimum of six years as a regular Governing Board approved employee. The leave may be granted for up to but not more than one year. The employee will need to provide evidence that sufficient college credits can be completed during the leave to complete the degree while on leave.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

PEL Application must be submitted by Second Friday in April by 5:00pm of the current fiscal year for the leave in the following fiscal year.

The PEL Committee will review all applications and determine each applicant’s eligibility. However, the final approval will depend on funding availability.
