§1173. Method of selecting and order of preference among applicants
A. Whenever, in accordance with the provisions of this Subpart, some of the applications cannot be granted, from among those which would otherwise be granted, those to be granted, except as specified in this Section, shall be determined in the following manner:
(1) Preference in every case shall be given to the applicant who has rendered active service in the school system of the parish affected for the greatest number of consecutive semesters immediately preceding the period for which leave is requested, provided that where any two applicants rank equally in point of continuous service, preference in every case shall be given to the applicant who has rendered service in the school system for the greater total number of semesters.
(2) When any two applicants rank equally both in point of continuous service and in point of total service, preference in every case shall be given to the applicant whose date of birth is earlier.
(3) Applicants whose applications are filed in the first thirty days of the semester shall be given preference over those who seek medical leave under the special provisions relating to sickness during a school semester.
B. Whenever, in accordance with the method of selection outlined herein, the quota established for medical leave has been filled, all remaining applications shall be rejected and shall be disregarded in any further selection of applicants for that semester. Those whose applications are rejected have the right to reapply in any future semester.
