Roger Eddy’s Accumulated Sick “Bank Account” Released via FOIA

The Hutsonville School District released Superintendent Roger Eddy’s accumulated unused sick day “bank account”.

Last year, he didn’t use any of his 15 sick days or 3 of his personal days.  According to his contract, unused personal days are accumulated as unused sick days.

Therefore, last year 18 unused sick days were accumulated in Roger Eddy’s sick day “bank account”.

Here is the stunning part:  Roger Eddy has accumulated 417 days in his “bank”. Per his contract, Eddy’s “working year” is only 171 days.
