GCPB/GDPB - Resignation of Staff

Adopted: 8/13/97 

A licensed staff member who wishes to resign from his/her position with the district must give written notice at least 60 days prior to the date he/she wishes to leave district employment.  The superintendent is authorized to accept the resignation effective the day it is received and either release the teacher immediately from further teaching or administrative obligations or inform the teacher that he/she must continue teaching for part or all of the 60-day period.

Where less than a 60-day notice is given, the Board may request the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission to suspend the teacher’s or administrator’s license for the remainder of the school year.  Exceptions due to emergency or other extenuating circumstances may be considered by the Board.

The superintendent is authorized to accept resignations of licensed or classified employees effective the day they are received.
