The district offers Travel, Study, Special Project and Retraining sabbaticals. In accordance with UESF contract Section 10.2.11.1.1: “Sabbatical leaves must be preceded by at least seven consecutive years of teaching service, all of which shall have been full-time service as tenured, probationary or long-term substitute status in the San Francisco Unified School District. For contractual employees initially hired by the District on or after July 1, 1998, “full time service (1.00 FTE)” is defined as tenure track service. Qualifying service shall be construed as being in paid District status for seventy-five (75%) of the teaching days in each school year.
