Sick leave payout at retirement

I am retiring as a teacher in the Cherry Creek School District. My sick leave
payout of $51,000 must be paid over 2 years.  My district is telling me that
I can only shelter the first half to a 403B in August, 2022. The district
says I won't be an employee for the 2nd distribution in August, 2023,
however, I will be a substitute teacher employed directly through the
district. Is this accurate? Thank you!

It's likely that substitute teachers do not receive benefits and thus are not able to contribute to the 403b plan...so if you're not a benefitted employee for 2023, they won't allow the contribution. It is still earned income, so an IRA may allow you to contribute and deduct...or a Roth IRA instead, so you have no required distributions and tax-free growth...check in with a local NAPFA advisor who may be able to help you work through your options and build a plan.
