RESIGNATION OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF MEMBER
recognizes that circumstances might exist that would cause a professional
employee to request a release from his/her contract. The School Board, however
is responsible for the employment of a professional staff that will help
educate students in as effective a manner as is possible. This being so, resignations will be
considered and/or approved only during the period ending with the following
July 1, and then only for the school year commencing with the following
September. Furthermore, the Board will
not approve such resignations if an equally qualified and competent
professional person cannot be hired to replace the person seeking approval of
his or her resignation request.
recognizes that extenuating circumstances may arise during a school year
necessitating special consideration of a resignation, and will review each
such case on its individual merits.
Again, such a case will be considered only if an equally qualified and
competent person can be hired to replace the staff member.
instances where the School Board
does not release a staff member from his/her contract, and said person leaves
employment of the district, it shall be the policy of this school district to
consider requesting suspension of the staff member's credentials by the State
Board of Education and/or proceeding to initiate such court action which the School Board determines appropriate.
shall resign between July 30 and September 30 of any year except under the
terms set forth in the current Master Agreement between the Rochester
