4060 Resignation of Certificated Staff

4060 resignation of certificated staff

Certificated staff members who know they will not be returning to employment at the school district for the following school year are encouraged to submit their resignations as early as possible, to enable the board to find suitable replacements.

Certificated staff members who submit their resignations to the board of education by 4:00 PM CST on April 15 will be released from the next school year's contract. Any certificated staff member who wishes to be released after April 15 must submit his or her request in writing to the superintendent no later than 4:00 PM CST on June 1. The board will consider releasing certificated staff members who submit a request by June 1 if the board can hire a replacement that the board believes to be a good fit for the needs of the district. After June 1 the board will generally not consider requests for release unless there is some unusual circumstance which makes it extraordinarily beneficial to the district. It is the board’s intention to grant few, if any, requests from certificated staff members who request release after June 1.

Certificated staff members who refuse to fulfill their contractual obligations will be reported to the Professional Practices Committee of the Nebraska Department of Education.
