I believe you will be paid for up to 30 days of accumulated
annual leave (that will be taxed and retirement may even be
taken out-not sure about that). You will not be paid for
unused sick days. Sick days can only be used for credit toward
retirement. I think 20 sick days equals one month of credit.
That only helps if you're leaving your state retirement in
place for later.
I wish you well in the private sector and hope you've already
found a new job. Teaching has always been a demanding job but
not always as disheartening as it is now.
