Any accumu- 22 lated sick leave earned prior to July 1, 1976, shall be used before the use of 23 any accumulated sick leave earned subsequent to July 1, 1976. 24 Each local board of trustees may establish a policy governing leave for 25 certificated and noncertificated employees in the case of illness or death of 26 members of the families of such employees, for professional conferences and 27 workshops, and for such other purposes as the board may determine. 28 ( c3) Each local board of trustees may establish a policy governing leave 29 for certificated and noncertificated employees in the case of absence during a 30 period for which the employee is paid by worker's compensation. In addition 31 the board may supplement the worker's compensation payment by an amount not to 32 exceed an amount which when combined with the worker's compensation payment 33 would be equal to the amount the employee would have been paid if he had not 34 been injured. Supplementation may come from accrued vacation leave, compensa- 35 tory time or sick leave time as may be provided in the policy of the district. 36 Time for which a person is paid worker's compensation shall not be allowed as 37 straight sick leave which would result in duplicate compensation. 38 ( d4) The board of trustees of any school district, including any spe- 39 cially chartered district, may also grant a leave of absence to any certifi- 40 cated employee of such district for service to a professional educational 41 organization of which such certificated employee is a member and has been 42 elected to hold the office of president therein, such leave to be for a period 43 not exceeding one (1) year.
