College tuition and partial fee exemption for certified educational aides
House Bill 571, passed by the 75th Legislature, created a college tuition and partial fee exemption program for individuals who have been employed as certified educational aides for at least two years at a public school in Texas and who are attending a public institution of higher education in Texas to become certified as a teacher. This program became effective during the 1997 fall term. If you would like further information regarding college tuition and partial fee exemption, please contact the financial aid office of the college/university where you plan to enroll.
Sick leave bank/catastrophic illness:
Hutto ISD employees may join the Sick Leave Bank by donating one local personal day to the Bank. The purpose of the Sick Leave Bank is to provide additional leave days to members of the bank in the event of an unexpected extended illness, non-elective surgery, or a temporary disability due to an injury. Days may be requested only after the member has exhausted all accumulated state and local personal leave. Complete guidelines, membership form and application form can be found in the appendix.

Applications for each school year will go out toward the end of the spring semester.
