RE: Requesting sabbatical with no pay
Dear [Principal’s Name],
This letter is a formal request for a three month sabbatical without pay, so that I may attend a course at [Name of University] on [Name of Course].
My last day of work would be [Friday, January 30th] and I would return to my classroom on [Wednesday, May 2nd].
This course is a special arrangement made by the University and is being taught by [Name of Professor] who is a Nobel Prize winner in the field.
It will not be offered again in the near future, which is why I need to take advantage of it at this time.
I have enclosed a brochure about the course. It is my belief that by attending this course, I will improve my knowledge and understanding in my field, which will make me a better teacher in our esteemed school.
I will be living at home while attending the course and would be happy to help the replacement teacher.
I will leave full lesson plans for each of my four, ninth-grade math classes. I can be reached at [Phone Number] or by email at [Email Address] at any time except between [9am and 12pm] on week days.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
