Topic: UIL-Athletic Absence
A Lubbock ISD Employee may be absent for UIL-Athletics if the employee meets one of the following requirements:
- Coach or an Assistant Coach – employee must be assigned to coaching a team in the event being played
- Color Guard, Cheerleader or Pom Squad Sponsor – the squad must be participating in the event being played
It is not considered an absence for UIL-Athletics, and therefore the employee shall enter the absence in the TEAMS Employee Service Center as “State Personal Leave,” if an employee is:
- A Coach or an Assistant Coach, but has no district assigned coaching responsibilities in the event being played
- Attending the athletic event as a parent/guardian
According to the Lubbock ISD Athletic Management Handbook, absences taken for state tournaments are not approved UIL-Athletic absences unless you are attending as a part of a team competing. Contact the Athletic Department for additional information.
