Contracts entered into with licensed employees, other than an administrator, will continue from year to year unless the contract states otherwise, is modified by mutual agreement between the Board and the employee, or the contract is terminated by the Board.

Licensed employees whose contracts will be recommended for termination by the Board will receive notice prior to April 30.  The superintendent will make a recommendation to the Board for the termination of the licensed employee’s contract.

Licensed employees who wish to resign, to be released from a contract, or to retire must comply with Board policies in those areas.
