Is FMLA concurrent with other maternity leave?

I am a public school teacher in the state of California and I am expecting a baby early next year. The district HR department has given me conflicting accounts regarding my maternity leave benefits. The most recent version they have given me is that my six weeks of maternity leave are concurrent with my 12 weeks of FMLA leave, resulting in a maximum of 12 weeks off. Prior to this, my understanding was that FMLA began upon completion of my maternity leave, resulting in a maximum of 18 weeks off. Any input or references that you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

special rules for teachers

there are special rules that apply only to teachers whose regular work year is nine months. you really need to sit down with an attorney specializing in employment law, and go over your due date, your school year, your leave policies, and the statutory and regulatory numbers. if you live in southern california, please call me to set up an appointment.
