Short-Term Medical Leave

Lee’s Summit School District disability plans can help replace a portion of your salary in the event of a covered medical condition or off-the-job accident.

It's important to ensure your ability to earn a living. Should a sickness or injury strike, your out-of-pocket expenses -- not to mention lost time on the job -- can impact the financial well- being of you and your family. The Lee’s Summit School District’s disability plans can help replace a portion of your salary in the event of a covered medical condition or off-the-job accidents. The cost of these coverages is paid by Lee’s Summit School District. These plans are insured through The Standard. To receive benefits your claim must be submitted to and approved by The Standard.

The District provides, at no cost, regularly scheduled employees (full- and part-time) receiving compensation included in a District contract and/or compensation summary, with a Short Term Medical Leave (STML) plan administered by The Standard. Regularly scheduled is defined as working in a position required during the hours and days of the student attendance calendar authorized for the school term. STML provides paid leave and continuation of insurance coverage to eligible employees when they are unable to work for an extended period due to a serious non-work related health condition. Pregnancy-related medical conditions which meet the requirements of this plan are covered on the same basis as any other qualifying health condition.
