New: Apply for Non-Medical Leaves Online

The new Self-Service Online Leave Application System (SOLAS) makes it easier and more convenient to apply for a leave of absence! DOE employees can use SOLAS to apply for leave from a computer or smartphone – all you need is your DOE email address and password.

SOLAS offers:
  • Easier applications: Apply online and upload your supporting documents directly into the system.
  • Faster processing and timely responses: The automated system makes it possible to process your application in significantly less time than it takes to process paper applications.
  • Real-time information: Log in to SOLAS to get up-to-date information on the status of your application.
  • Smarter staffing: With a faster, more efficient leave application system, schools will have more timely information to help them make staffing decisions.

Who can use SOLAS?

Beginning June 3, 2013, non-supervisory pedagogical employees can use SOLAS to apply for non-medical leaves of absence. SOLAS will be available for other employee groups and other kinds of leaves in the coming months.
