The Board of Education will enter a contract with each nontenured teaching staff member providing, in part, for the termination of employment by either party on proper notice in accordance with Policy 3124.

An employee’s resignation must be tendered to the Board through the Superintendent who may accept the resignation on behalf of the Board.  Any such acceptance of a resignation will be ratified by the Board at its next meeting.

A member who offers insufficient notice of resignation will be paid only through the last day of service.  In addition, the Board may notify the Commissioner of Education of any tenured teaching staff member who terminates his/her position without having given sixty days written notice to the Board unless the Board approves the tenured teaching staff member’s release on shorter notice.  The Commissioner of Education may suspend the tenured teaching staff member’s certificate for not more than one year for failure to give such notice.
