School District 25 Policy
Adopted: April 9, 1985
Legal Ref: W.S. 21-7-107
Resignations of certified staff members shall be in writing and may be accepted by the Superintendent, without penalty through June 30. The Superintendent should consider each request to be released from contract after July 1 on an individual basis and present such request to the Board for approval.
Contracts are to be mutually binding. Any certified staff member breaking a signed contract, except with the approval of the Board, will be cited to the State Board of Education. Court action may be a recourse to the Board.
Since late resignations, after the 1st of July, cause certain expenses to the District in finding a suitable replacement, the Board may require that actual expenses to the District shall be borne by the certified staff member as liquidated damages and not as penalty. This shall in no way interfere with the certified staff member's right to resign prior to the end of the contract period, effective at the end of the contract year.
