RESIGNATION OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF MEMBERS
The superintendent of schools is authorized to approve resignations of employees. Any resignation must be in writing.
A teacher may resign after April 15 of any school year with the approval of the superintendent. The teacher shall request release from contract at least two weeks in advance of intended date of resignation. Such request shall state the cause of the resignation. The teacher may, within one week, withdraw a request to resign. Upon the expiration of the one week period, the superintendent shall notify the School Board of the decision to accept or reject the resignation. The School Board, within two weeks, may reverse the decision of the superintendent. In the event that the Board or the division superintendent declines to grant the request for release on the grounds of insufficient or unjustifiable cause, and the teacher breaches such contract, disciplinary action, which may include revocation of the teacher's license, may be taken pursuant to regulations prescribed by the Board of Education.
